Subject: RE: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
Well, I use a tuner (named it Charlie) and I wouldn't dare go without. But then I've never considered myself serious about anything, including music.

Any time you REQUIRE someone to do something you remove some of the enjoyment. One important thing about playing an istrument is to be able to get some kind of music out of it as soon as possible. Face it, most of us play for our own enjoyment and if we can achieve that enjoyment with less effort (tuner vs the ear discipline) then we are that much better off. Plus, as people have said up above, many professionals use them.
