Any recommendations on guitar tuners? The one I am currently using now is not working very well.

Check the battery. If the battery is gone, the tuner won't work much.

And sometimes stale strings are the culprit.

I always use harmonics except for the first string. You get a much purer note that tuners like better.

I like the Intelli IMT500 (Tune Tech now). You can get them for $14.99 on Amazon plus $3.49 shipping (ZoZo Music).
Yes using the harmonics is best with these tuners and especially on the 6th string.

Yeh - those clip on tuners are pretty good. A lot of guitars like takamine have inbuilt ones these days which are SOOOOOO handy!!
