One last question: do chromatic tuners give you any open string, or only when they're at standard?

Like, if I wanted C tuning, when I'm tuning down, would it show a C on the top string or just a really really low E?

You should play in standard playing a c tuned guitar is too easy, so in my eyes is for people who cannot play well.

You don't want to tune down to much with out setting it up properly.

He didn't ask if he should play tuned to C.

Most, if not all chromatic tuners will show the note that's being played - so if you're playing a C, it will show a C. When you get down low it's a little more murky, but you shouldn't have a problem.

It would show one of the 12 notes, and then how sharp/flat you are relative to it.

Why SHOULD you play in standard tuning? Who makes the rules? If its C standard then its EXACTLY the same, just 2 full steps down, and what an absolutely stupid thing to say, using a drop tuning does not mean you cant play well, it just means you use a drop tuning.

the point of a chromatic tuner is to display the note being played
