Default Good Info on Tuning

This guy has some interesting insight on tuning. It's a good article but, I bet his studio time adds up quick and could get expensive.

He doesn't get into the fact that a piano that has every note tuned to exact pitch will sound out of tune in just about every key except one. (I can't remember which one, either C or A. It's been a long time since I assisted with any piano tuning)

Part 1 fascinating. Part 2 later today. I knew some of this but there's always more to learn.

Well, as you can see, final part 3 shows that the likelihood of tuning your guitar to a Sound Engineer's standard of perfection is similar to a snowflake's chance in Hades! So get used to playing slightly out of tune like everyone else!

Afterthought:

It's a good thing that very few of us have perfect-pitch hearing. To my ears anyway, trained opera singers, by trying too hard, sometimes go slightly sharp. The solution to this problem for a pop/rock fan is simple though. Don't listen to opera!

Default Tommy Denander and "Evertune" tuning breakthrough

Hugely in-demand session guitarist, Tommy Denander and his new (2010 prototype) signature guitar with "Evertune" system - an end to tuning problems?

Default (detractors)

Hold the phone! On further investigation, Gretsch aficionados are almost, to a man/woman, opposed to Evertune - on aesthetic grounds mainly. Retrofits are the biggest bone of contention amongst traditionalists evidently. Electric guitars designed around Evertune and built from the ground up may make for a happier marriage.

BTW you can still do string bends affecting pitch with this system, by all accounts.

Any views on all of this, J i m m y?
