On the guitar, tuning is the method of raising or lowering a string's pitch until it perfectly matches the desired note

By winding a guitar's tuning pegs, the strings will either loosen (flat) or tighten (sharp).
Tuning is the process of making sure those strings precisely match the pitches of a given tuning.
An electronic guitar tuner indicates whether a string's pitch needs to be raised or lowered in order to be in tune.
