Hi again - Well, in the midst of the wind I gave a first tuning
lesson to the lady with the Burton / Bolton the other night, and
she thought the lights were coming _on._ Has played keyboards for
decades, and the only thing she'd ever heard about un-ET was that
you coludn't play hymns in it! She agreed instantly that the lack
of tuning experience for pianists must be fatal - everybody has
to tune to _them,_ after all - and that sitting down to devise a
musical scale, as one does every time one tunes, is something that
any musical person outght to try.
I could never figger out how a pianist could get out the school door
without knowing a bit about tuning; imagine having to call the
mechanic every time a tire needed a little air!
