I hope this tutorial has shown you that tuning can be a very tricky thing, but at the same time very doable if you just take the right approach and avoid certain things. I find that the best way to tune is to make sure my instrument's intonation is properly adjusted and then tune the 12th fret harmonics with a good tuner.

Bad intonation and tuning can make even the greatest guitar player sound like a beginner, so it's well worth it buying a great tuner and spending some time getting good at this! That way you can spend your time playing and having fun instead of driving yourself crazy with tuning issues.
