Default Re: Ears versus Tuners

[QUOTE=burp birl;1230639]I don't know about the rest of you, but I do know that my blowing is different if I try and use a tuner. If my pipes are tuned with a tuner they are close but I can tell when I start playing a tune that the pipes are slightly out of tune and I have to tweak them a bit and I really feel that this is because I'm blowing slightly different. /QUOTE]

A possible reason that they sound out of tune may be that your ear is accustomed to an out of tune chanter, and you want to get back to what you know and are comfortable with.
Noble and manly music invigorates the spirit, strengthens the wavering man, and incites him to great and worthy deeds. Homer.
