Hi,

This is potentially a very hard problem.  The algorithm you use for this is the Fast Fourier Transform (or FFT) - but usually the sound from musical instruments such as the guitar consist of many frequencies (called harmonics), so you'll end up with a jumbled mess of frequencies out the other end of the FFT.  You'll have to find out which frequency you need and filter the rest out.

There are many FFT components available for Delphi online.  You'll find one of them here: http://teachme.tuwien.ac.at/lo/fourier.html

Good luck
David
