Tuner is incorrect !
I've noticed that the tuner tunes strings a bit flat. Especially the E and G strings. After I get past the tuner screen I pause and turn on my tuner that latches on to my headstock. The E and G strings are always about a quarter or an eighth step flat(maybe an eighth is more accurate. Also, the others strings tend to be a bit flat too. That's really my only major beef with this game. I can definitely tell it's out of tune when I start playing. Hopefully someone can fix this issue.

I have noticed the same thing. When I put my guitar in tune (FOR REAL) I totally bomb out on some of the arcade games (like Temple of Bends) but if I use the in-game tuner, I do much better but songs song wonky and ugly. What on earth gives?

for new guitarists all be ok because thay don't know mutch yet
but for people with experience it is pain for their ears :(

Note that some songs are not in a real Standard Tuning. They are deliberately slightly off, so you can't depend on your external tuner and have to trust the game.

this is not special song problem
this is problem in tuning

Run Rocksmith 2014, go to Tools, select Tuner, then E Standard (which SHOWS as A440, so no nonsense about flat/sharp tuning with specific songs please) and it will show the same guitar(s) as sharp even though they were just shown perfectly in tune with one of the most precise tuners available (the Peterson).

I've noticed this same problem, mostly for the G string. But, I only need to tune flat to get past the tuner. Once past the tuner, I will usually tune correctly with my Snark and the game seems to register the proper notes.

I finally had a chance to check your claim with my Corg tuner and guess what? You're right! =) In-game tuner is definitely flat...

If you tune to the in game tuner are the notes then recognized when you play the game?

According to my tuner, in-game E standard is actually tuning to 436, maybe 437 rather than 440.

Maybe the pitch sounds slightly higher after the signal is processed?

The problem with strings being even slightly out of tune is that while playing you are not only building muscle memory but tonal memory and your ears start to associate notes with locations on the fretboard. When that stuff doesn't match up, you lose ground.

No, you're not taken seriously because you exaggerate problems, and don't offer any valueable opinions.

Yeah, one of the first things I noticed about the game is that I had to tune down about 20 cents flat.

I did a little experimenting with my Les Paul studio. The precision tuner seems more accurate on the neck pickup, but still doesn't handle the G string correctly.

However, tuning slightly flat on the G and low E strings to get past the precision tuner, and then tuning them up to correct pitch on the general tuner works fine.

And, it didn't hurt accuracy in the game at all.

Sometimes after I tune, and I exit the tuner, I'll then just play the strings and observe the note display in the lower left corner. It tells you the note you're playing, whether it's flat or sharp, and it has proven for me to be a more accurate measure of tuning.

The tuner itself will let you get away with being out of tune enough to cause a problem with note recognition in songs/games. It has a pretty generous window of what is/isn't in tune and it doesn't let you make minor adjustments before it advances to the next string.

I trick the tuner and it doesn't seem to take away from my accuracy. Just let the strings ring out, it takes longer(especially on the G string...jokes) but it's worth it to the ears. Problem is, it keeps me from wanting to change my tuning, which limits my list of song choices.
