DonMeixner Did I Mess Up??? Music??? (32) RE: Did I Mess Up??? Music??? 27 Jul 11

Hi Bob,

I learned years ago that I needed help tuning all the time. I have a significant hearing loss. !00% on the right side of my head and 30% on the left. I hear big sounds but not subtle ones. If I play guitar by itself I hear the guitar fine enough but when I start to sing I only hear my voice. For me it is the effect of striking a chord to find the key and then singing A Capella for the whole song and then finishing with another chord.

Either I have a lot of very polite people in Central New York or I am very good at staying in key. Either way I am never sure.

If some one came up to me to say "Your B string is some considerable flat." I'd say "Thanks."

The best day of my musical life was the invention of the affordable electronic tuner.

I have always found exact change to be more useful than perfect pitch anyway.
