How can a violin produce a compatible set of notes when the violin (body) itself has discrete and limited resonance characteristics?
I do not question that I can get any pitch per vibrating string arithmetic but that is not the same as tone quality or volume.
For instance,how can an open string "E" and "G" coexist if violin behavior is not essentially similar at those frequencies?
Finally, does all this suggest that poor intonation is possibly a matter of tone quality in addition to pitch problems?
