I am a really really new violist so before this, I used the frets when I first started learning. So after a while, my teacher thought that I was ready for the frets to be removed.
And that is when I frequently get out of tune >_<
Maybe my muscle memory has not fully developed yet but I wasn't able to recognize the really slight difference in tune.
For example, when I am playing E on the D string, it sounds ok to me but for a skilled violist like my teacher, he would say its slightly out of tune.
I really wanted it to be perfect so I can move on to other practices but I cant seemed to know if I am out of tune???? I mean if its really bad I would know but its the slight difference that I wasn't able to recognize it >_<
My teacher told me to practise together with a piano so that I really know what note I am playing but I still can't get it to perfect???
What should I do wahhh?
