Thread Name: Help me! I need the perfect tuner
Subject: RE: Help me! I need the perfect tuner
Not sure if this was briefly touched upon in one of the previous posts, but what's the intonation like on your instrument (I'm assuming guitar, too)? You can have it perfectly in tune open but as soon as you finger even a first-position chord, it's out. How a capo is put on can also throw the tuning out of whack.

On the other hand, the fiddler could be cursed with perfect pitch. Some people with this 'blessing' can't stand anything even slightly off.
