    Like I said this thread is for people who have discovered that "real world" shit aint quite what they thought it should be. Not for some one who thinks it don't matter a toss. Tell you what next time some one asks the question I'll tell you said it don't matter.

    Okay, okay. Sorry to mess up your perfectly-tuned thread, dude. But thanks for the proposal -- If you want to give them my advice, tell them that before they try to fix their problem by studying Equal Temperament tuning, they should make sure that their left-hand position is good (assuming they are right-handed), their set-up is good, and their strings are good. Then in order to train their ears so they can successfully apply this advice, they should listen to recordings of themselves singing to see whether they need some ear-training. Finally, if any of this makes a player feel insecure, they might want to ask a few people they trust if their guitar ever sounds out of tune.

    Surgeons tend to suggest surgery, lawyers tend to suggest lawsuits. Experts in guitar tuning...

    Also -- and I'm not suggesting that this alleviates the need to make one's ears as good as possible -- good quality electronic tuners do accomplish Equal Temperament tuning, do they not? [see http://hubpages.com/hub/Equal-Temper...Guitar-Tuning]

    Yeh they can, What they can't do is adjust for the individuals guitars and it's setup. That's why you need to temper tunings.

    I'll just add finally that most of what you say to defend yourself in your last post, I have already pointed out in this thread, on occasion to you. The rest I have said a thousand times in other posts. Just spend a few minutes and read back over the conversation we have had and use an objective eye, I just have. Who is truly acting the arrogant cock here? You bundle in with all this is "academic" and irrelevant, I respond several times pointing out that it is for the benefit of those that have asked for information on the subject AND pointed out to you why. What a total waste of fucking time.

    I was asked to write this sticky by others here and by two mods. I didn't volunteer to do it. Next time they want an arrogant and totally useless sticky I shall know where to send them, right? Until such time you can fuck right off.

    Well, I do hope that you refuse any further "sticky" threads. You had a dismissive attitude from square one toward anyone who did not unquestioningly buy into your expertise. Not helpful and ridiculously thin-skinned.

    I'm gone now; you are welcome to the last word as your ego seems to need it.

    Refuse, to damn right I'm gonna refuse. I'm gonna get them to ask you to do it. I just checked out out your post history. What a fucking helpful guy you are. Not one helpful post ego or not.....

    He has every guitar regularly setup so he can use his keen ears to temper his tunings and have the intervals he wants balanced and sound true. Ask me how I know this.
    How do you know that, Mutt?
