Home page of a nearby [<100 miles away] luthier:


He is speaking of tuning guitars, but also mentions violin. Nice discussion toward the end about the oddities of human hearing too.

so, after reading the whole article... and reflecting on my playing of the violin...

I have determined that I am never "out of tune"....! Great... everyone hears things differently so I have to think at least someone else out there thinks my violin is playing in tune when some of the members here on the board seem to think otherwise. LOL


Awesome article... I need to print that out and keep it handy in case I get static from the cats and the dogs run for the front porch...
