Good Day. Being an adult beginner I have found the violin both interesting historically as well as a daunting undertaking. I am compelled to ask "why things are?". So, why do we tune in fifths instead of , say, fourths or octaves. Is there an actual practical reason or just custom? On a side, why, then, are basses tuned in fourths? Thanks, Clif
