Perish the thought! But it can only be in tune as much as the sample from which it was taken . . Listen to some of my notes on Piano No 3 . .

I`ve been discussing fine tuning on the Elite Piano Tuners Forum - how far do they go, now long it lasts on an AP, etc. Very interesting it is too.

So I thought I`d sound out some of the strange sounding notes on my own. They do give it a character of sorts (it`s not the default piano) akin to a badly tuned acoustic . . .

Thought you motley lot might have been interested too . . Fat chance . . . .! (Gallic Shrug)

Peter, I believe the word you are looking for is Japanese.

I doubt he meant it in an offending fashion. Only a social faux pas, probably. ;-)

I`m old enough to be forgiven any number of social faux passes; I`ve worked hard to achieve this and it is fully deserved. . .
