GUEST,strad intonation in fiddle music (55* d) RE: intonation in fiddle music 20 Jan 09

Perhaps the sound of not being in tune especially when playing two strings at once has sommething to do with our long exposure to the well-tempered clavier concept. If I e.g. play an open E together with a C# on the A string, I find I have to flatten the C# just a tiny bit for it to sound in tune to me. That's the joy of playing the fiddle - you can do things like that. But I also find that a lot of fiddlers just don't hit the right note with me, but I'm a grumpy old fart.
