Title: Automatic guitar tuner

Abstract: An automatic tuning device including a plurality of universal attachment clamp and tuning motor assemblies, a head-mounted electronics enclosure, and a power pedal. A stringed instrument analog signal is processed by electronics in the power pedal, which calculates and then wirelessly sends information about what string is being played and whether it is in tune. The information is received by a head-mounted electronics enclosure, which then actuates a motor to turn a corresponding tuning peg as needed. The tuning motors are disposed on a universal attachment clamp, which is designed to remain on the instrument headstock securely and unobtrusively.
