So I finally broke out the tuner tonight with the idea of tuning the glasses for a total of 8 notes.
Yeah. About that…
The strangest thing happened tonight: I’d get about 3 glasses tuned, label them with a nearby sticky note and then play them in progression to make sure they sounded right.
Suddenly the notes weren’t the notes anymore! The hell?!
I’m beginning to see how this torture device instrument fell out of fashion–it’s maddening!
Still, I will soldier on because, hey, this is this week’s focus so what else am I gonna do?!
AND! For those who might have a use for an occasional tuner but don’t want to spend the $20 on a digital one, I was fiddling around with my phone (a Samsung Reality through Verizon) and it turns out there’s a Guitar Tuner application right there on the phone! It even had a one-day price for that try-it-out, perfect-your-pitch moment.
This isn’t over yet! Stay tuned…
