I have played the game on Intonation, but was wondering what the best way to practice Intonation is. I have tried to use my Tuner at 440 and just practice doing my scales with long bow draws, but seem to be so focused on the tuner that I do not really feel like I am learning anything from it. Any thoughts or suggestions on a good way to practice this would be appreciated.

The problem I had with that is the size of the tuners.  It's hard to see it and concentrate on finger placement.  I use http://www.seventhstring.com/t.....r.html on my computer screen and find it easier. Instead of trying to watch a little screen it's much larger.  The intonation game works very well though.  After awhile you can here that you are off.  You'll be playing a piece and suddenly it just sounds wrong.  If it sounds wrong it probably is wrong so move your finger until it sounds right.  After time even the slightest bit off and you will hear it.

Don't forget my drones under the LEARNING TOOLS link.

You can practice scales while listening to the drones for that scale.

How about some full scale drones.

 Like some three octave arppegios that we could play along with.

Actually, FM you could record several videos of your self playing different scales with the written scale right below you.

nice and slow . Put them on DVDs and sell them.

When I was taking lessons one thing I always enjoyed was playing along with my instructor trying to match her tone.

personnaly I would like some slightly advanced ones like mentioned above.

Just a thought!coffee1

Actually, I did something like that on Violaman.com
Simple scales to play along with but I do understand that you want more advanced ones.
I'll do it LB, but they will be free. I really do want to help as many people as I can or I wouldn't be doing this. Fiddlershop will hopefully be some of my bread and butter. 😉

Thanks KevinM, That did make it a little easier. I know what you mean about the tuner having a small screen.

 Thanks FM. I missed the Drones, I didn't scroll down far enough when I opened the drop box and  didn't see those. I am going to try that tonight when I get home from work.thumbs-up

I went through the drones with a student last week and noticed that there is one problem. They should play with a loop instead of ending so you can go on and on. I'll try to fix that somehow.
