What is the best guitar tuner for a beginner?

Most budget guitar tuners are suitable for beginners and are very easy to use. Choose a tuner with LEDs to indicate sharp and flat - most LEDs have this as standard. Manual note selection can be useful for beginners and a particular feature that is useful for beginners is an off-note indication. This will tell you which way to tune even if the string is a very long way out of tune.

Strobe tuning is more difficult to use and probably not suitable for absolute beginners.
