Electronic vs ear vs tuning forks - A story

At the last chanty sing in Portland, Maine, Kendall tuned his guitar with his tuning fork and Jeri tuned her fiddle with an electronic tuner. Then they spent the rest of the evening in good natured bickering over which one was flat or sharp. Finally Jeri tuned to Kendall's guitar and they were both happy.

Secon tuning story - Some friend had a band several years ago that included a hammered dulcimer. They let the dulcimer tune and then they tuned to him. They chose the course of tuning fewer strings.

Use what you like, you'll still have to match the majority.
