Roland and Brendan that' reassuring. I guess I was just unsure of whether or not I'm doing something wrong, as I have to work on something I did earlier, if only for a shorter time. I appreciate the feedback and am starting to actually agree with you

In any case, call your tuner. Only a tuner in person can tell for sure what it is. And then let us know.
