In this video, we learn how to tune a violin or fiddle with an electric tuner. The tuner may not know the difference between the strings, so make sure you know what you are playing before you begin. Clip the tuner to the bottom of the violin or fiddle, then play your strings to see where the needle on the tuner goes. As you play the strings, the needle should reach the middle. Twist the clasp on the strings to either loosen or tighten them, then you will be able to correctly tune the strings. Continue on through all of the chords, then use a friction tuner if you need, to help tighten your strings itself!
