    Self tuning guitars? A solution with no problem.

    I have about a dozen guitars of different sorts for about 20 years now and there has never been a problem keeping any of them in tune. No locking tuners either.

    Loves me some locking tuners.


    Mechanized machine heads? Not so much.

    I still remember when we had to tune to a pitch pipe or a keyboard or a harmonica. If you had none of those we defaulted to the guys who owned the most expensive guitar! Autotuners/digital tuners meh....
    Man those good old day's sucked :p

    Gimmicky, lazy. Dropping your E-string to D doesn't even take that long, I've been doing it between songs for about a decade and a half...
