Wouldn't it be more practical to just record each note (E,A,D,G,B,E) as seperate MP3 files and keep them on your MP3 player?

No, the idea is to
- record the guitar (via the built-in mic)
- analyze the signal to find strong frequencies
- decide which string (E/A/D/G/B/E - or maybe user defined layout) is currently played
- display tuning instructions (loosen/tighten)
- display needle-like analyzer (ascii art follows)

- G +

I'll try to write something like this once rockbox supports the line-in/microphone of the iAudio X5.

If possible, you'd probably be better off coding a chromatic tuner (i.e: it tunes to many notes, not just the standard guitar ones - see for an example) rather than just a guitar/bass tuner, since it would be more useful for other instruments/alternate tuning combinations. You could possibly even get it to spit out some reference tones, or allow for pitch configuration, which would be sweet, to say the least.
