today a violin teacher tuned my violin. It was the first time anyone but myself tuned the little thing. Curious, I've switched on my electronic tuner to check the frequencies (the person who tuned it was a real pro and had only used the tuner for a 440Hz A). Surprise: the tuner agreed totally with it. How come? The tuner frequencies are equal temperament frequencies, the same as my piano's... how come it didn't show a D string, for instance, as a bit flat, or sharp? I'm puzzled.
I've discussed my confusion with the violinist, but she didn't even understand what I was talking about (perhaps a language barrier, but I don't think so). I'm very confused. General relativity paradigm is just about to collapse (neutrinos were found traveling faster than light!!!!!) and now I'm struggling with this other paradigm (just versus equal)... my world is falling apart. Somebody help me, please.
