Mark, you answered my question perfectly.

I am lost in admiration for your vocal partials and, if I may say so, performed like a true native!

Agreed. Thanks Mark - your video confirmed what I was trying to say all along - the partials we hear are all present in the complex vibration of a piano string. Thanks, also, for including the guitar demonstration - particularly of the change of timbre as the pluck point is changed, thus exciting partials in different amounts.

Paul.

At the risk of dumbing down the conversation, I am posting a link to a video I made describing, in my own way, the harmonic series. As Kees said, it is defined by humans, for humans. And since I am a human teaching humans how to tune, I thought I would create this video to speed things up.

Some of it you might find it interesting, although it doesn't really move this conversation forward. Only to say that, as a practical application, I don't see the benefit of answering the question, although it is still interesting.

My video on the harmonic series, from the perspective of teaching a beginning piano tuning student so they may understand other aural tuning concepts that are built upon this subject, e.g. coincidental partials, etc.

Comments welcomed.

P.S. go right to the last section to hear me singing the harmonic series on one pitch.


The first good, succinct, easy-to-understand video on the subject that I've seen anywhere to date. Bravo!


Wow. Thanks Bob. That is really appreciated.
