It also depends very much on the piece of music you are playing.

What depends on the music?

As far as I'm aware any note you play should sound the same no matter what the tune you play it in.

That is where you are wrong Randy. I have had the metre on while a Pro was playing serious pipe music and the reading on individual notes varied.

Well Robin,

If what you say is indeed fact then I will bow out of this discussion as it is far above my abilities and knowledge.

I put the following on a mailing label in small type, trimmed it and pasted to back of my tuner. I'm sorry that the alignment/formatting won't hold up in the transmitted message. But, I think you can see how it goes.

LG LA B C D E F HG HA
-3.9 0 +3.9 -13.7 -2 +2 -15.6 -3.9 0

Cheers! PHIL

I did almost the same thing Phil.

I was able, with trimming to get Tone Czars chart on the back of the Korg and used clear packing tape to seal it.

I don't know Randy. I notice on the harder/faster tunes I play the notes go sharper!

Ach, that is because you are just blowing too hard! Most of tend to do that when we play faster. It is about controled and in the case of the pros playing serioue pipe music, suttble blowing.
