So there was a thread that has already reached 100 posts, main topic was tuning with a chromatic tuner or just tuning to A and then doing everything else by ear.
This is very very awkward.. What am I supposed to do? I don't yet have a tuner but something is worrying me. What system am I supposed to use? I wonder how my teacher is tuning my violin.
He teaches both violin and guitar and is fairly proficient at the piano. As I heard, the guitar is very close if not the same to the tuning of the piano and since I do have a 2 year background in the guitar, would be it better if my violin would be tuned completely to the tuner?
I read literally all the 100 posts in that thread and I'm more than confused.. I don't want to train my ear the wrong way, I don't want to hit 'out of tune' notes with my fingers.. What the heck is out of tune now anyway? I have a choice to be in tune with pianists and only like how the chromatic tunes my violin or be in tune with most of the violinists but never like the tuning of the piano??
This all to crazy for me to think about. Since I'm only half a year into the violin, I still have a choice which system to use.. and considering I'm really planning on learning the piano and I still practice the guitar, I have a big dilemma.
I'm scared to practice the violin now as I might be.. playing out of tune all the time now! Aren't I just adjusting to my teachers hearing?? Argghh...!
Please, any advice or suggestions!
Slightly concerned Theo
