    I have one too, and and A 436, but I haven't used them in years. Maybe decades.

    It’s great practice to try and get your instrument in tune with just a tuning fork. I always point to Tony Rice’s tuning demonstration on one of his Homespun lesson tapes. Floors me every time… the most in-tune G chord I ever heard

    If you plan to only play in G you can certainly tune for that, at the expense of poorer tune in other keys. It's a choice. The point of equal temperament is to get the best compromise for playing in all keys. It's possible to retune before playing in different keys, but it's not practical. Different musical styles require different compromises, of course.

    Huh? the A string is tuned to A ..
    It seems a need to know octave and unison notes on neighboring strings..
    5th & 7th frets,,,
