I’ve just published another article exploring the issues of tuning. This time, I look at tuning by simple mathematic ratios, or “Just Intonation”. I also investigate the True Temperament fretboard system to see whether that solves the problems we have identified with tuning.
I started writing a post on this subject today but it turned out to be too long for a post, so I’ve published it as an article. It concerns tuning with the circle of fifths, and why that doesn’t quite work. There’s a bit of maths involved (which I’ve done for you), and some interesting conclusions.
