Greetings, David, and to All,


Hmm... and.. Well...

From some old (and probably drunken :) doggerel...
(The italics... and spacing... are... of course... mine... :)


For th' tuning of it... use... your ears...
For the timing... tapping feet...
Some singing reeds... and a bit o' stout...
And your kit... is then... complete...


Trusting that all... may find their proper way...

Regards to All,

Ears, feet, stout, reed...

Reminds me of an old recipe, "Greens 'n Spleen" simmered in Guinness. With wild dock and burdock, in the thistle family, which makes a great winter dish for the penurious sarcophagous Highland piper.

Indeed, music is a listening pleasure. Thus we must know by sense and experience what good tone is, and not by readings off a device.
