Subject: RE: Help me! I need the perfect tuner
I have no doubt that the fiddle player's ear is more accurate than a electronic tuner. She may be hearing typical guitar tuning issues based on equal temperment tuning, string height,fret placement, etc.

See if she still can hear a problem if you tune fretted at the third fret and play in G with closed chords. If you don't do so already, you might try tweaking your tuning for whatever key you are in for example, hold a C chord and check the tuning if you are fixing to play in C.

OK, I've had my epiphany I do enjoy the CD, the solo one, and play it all the time as I told you in the hotel the other night.
