I think we'll have to wait until the TAB/playing tips are finished and put up on this website as suggested on the CD liner notes.

what I am more interested is it 440 hz or?

cause my cheap synth which I tune to has something like 442 (I measured it a year ago by ear so I forgot the exact number) and when I tune with my cheap ibanez tuner to 440 it sounds out a bit, while when tuning with synth it is much more in tune but still out a bit :mrgreen:

and btw...can`t wait for the tabs...the one that I found for touching tongues seem a bit wrong...so I am curious how much of it I guessed correctly by ear...those little things, you know


I know, I know...playing it note for note is kinda lame...but ey...you gotta practice first :mrgreen:

Ah ha! Breeder, you've just discovered the weirdness in piano tuning with your very sensitive ears. Keyboards have 'stretched tuning' which pulls notes here and there so one can play reasonably in tune is all keys, but guitars don't have the same stretched tuning so trying to play along with a piano can cause tiny clashes.In a mix with lots of other instruments, one doesn't usually hear the guitar being out-of-tune. But if you are duetting with a piano/synth then you'll have to play around with your tuning!

I always thought piano stretching was more audible on those hiiiiiiigh and loooooooow strings

But it may be human error since I tune to octave harmonics whenever possible ( 12, 5, 2.5 fret) plus my frets are getting a bit worn out

Actually, your thought reminded me of that Guthrie Govan book where he explains that when jamming with the piano he noticed some chord shapes work a lot better and the way Eric Johnson tunes his guitar (starts from the middle, D and G, and then works his way up and down from there)
