I did not think of looking into that. I am sure you can use any tone of
the correct frequency to tune a guitar but as a complete beginner I
found it comfortable to hear all the qualities of the sound from the
guitar. I started yesterday, having borrowed a guitar from a friend and
the hack was just for convenience.

I should also mention that I tried to avoid using EMMS but it has a nice
property that the internal `play-sound*' functions does not have and
that is that playing another string before the first one has finished
will stop the first one. If I use `play-sound' the sound will block
Emacs until it is done.
