Step 2: Launch gStrings, then press the Menu key and select Settings
Step 3: Select the "Optimize For" drop-down list
Step 4: Select "Guitar."
Step 5: Go back to the main tuning screen.
Step 6: Press the "Tune Auto" button to have the tuner automatically identify the notes. To tune a specific note, choose a note from the row at the top and hit the "Tune" button, located on the lower left-hand side.
