I've found that music on youtube and immedeately wanted to play it. But when i started to play, find out that right notes moved down the fingerboard .. Checked violin's tuning 443, retuned it to 440 – still too high.. Checked with synthesizer …- it was too high as well . That was a challenge for my ears but i tuned the synthesizer down to 40% of half-tone – and it worked for me .. Who has good ears, please HELP! Do i have hearing troubles or it's REALLY lower?
Depends on what part you want to play. You should be able to play all the singing parts as the lowest note that is sung is a middle C unless I missed something. There seems to be more than just the violin harmonizing in the background (a viola and cello perhaps?).
Very beautiful and haunting piece by the way. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, guys! Thank You for the feedback!
And i have a question for those who tried to play it: was you'r 3rd finger on #G as low on the string as mine, while you tried to play that piece (somewhere between G and #G)? Or i'm ->
I think, notes for this song are #G C B G / #G C D G / #D D B C / #G G C C/ if i'm mistaken and you noticed - please, tell me!!
I mean just how can it be? A = 440Hz, or 443Hz... But how it can be 40% of half-tone lower? Or it happens?
P.S. If i'm annoying - just ignore
I got A♭ C B G / A♭ C D G / E♭ D B C / A♭ G C - / ... so your notes seem to be correct. As I don't have a violin with me I can't really test it out, but I don't think you should need to make any significant adjustments to the way you play A♭ (G#). Maybe someone with their violin at hand can answer.
In "Meantone" temperment the notes are not the same but "Enharmonically" they are. IOW, don't worry about it. Just play what sounds right to your ear. The truth is that G# is 41 cents lower......................
Thank You! That was interesting. With all that information (and some other) i made some calculations and found out that:
if i had to tune my synthesizer 40% down to play along with this piece, then it means that they tuned their instruments down to A= ~ 430.879Hz. so it means that G# as well became lower But this all makes sense if this tune is REALLY lower then useful A=440
Then i have to ask: Is there anyone who tunes their instruments to A= ~ 431Hz?
P.S. That was a very simple question for those who has good ears: low or normal (A=431 or A=440) if i had good ears i shouldn't have to ask you guys, really, i'm sorry for bothering you so much..
Fuoof!!!! Thank You again, FiddlerMan! That was an answer!! So i kmow now that things like that happen and my poor brain does not explode any more
But i have
a question to m.k. now : You defined notes without an instrument and You were not confused by the fact that they are low! How did you do that? Do You define them by comparing to each other?
I didn't care about questions like that while played on guitar or synthesizer
