"Thanks.  I think I will get a pitch pipe.  I've been playing (acoustic steel string) for close to six years now and being able to tune by ear certainly would be cool.  I've tried to tune and then test with the electronic…"

Paul Craig replied to Tony Obermeit's discussion Hello from country New South Wales in the group Introduce Yourself!
"It's always good to start out with a pitch pipe to tune your gits when learning to play. It helps train your ear for the notes so you can pick up other places on the fingerboard/fretboard for the same notes at different pitch.  It's…"

Paul Craig replied to Tony Obermeit's discussion Hello from country New South Wales in the group Introduce Yourself!
"Fingerboard is also a name for it. Those dots can be helpful for learning the where the notes are. Just have to be sure your also training your ears also and not just the eyes so the dots don't become a crutch."

"On fretless gits, I like to make "fret lines" so I can get right to that point. Some learn were to play without visual aids and some can't do without. All my gits are fretted and I've learned to use a slide without the…"

"Another question, I've been leaning heavily towards making my 1st 3 string cbg a fretted one.  I play a fretted guitar and don't really play by ear as much as I'd like to so leaning to a fretted cbg as that's what I'm…"

"Sure, please send through the links.  I'm leaning towards a six pole pickup, also have liked some of the slimline ones for cbg guitar.  Glad I've not started building yet as the neck height may change depending on the pickup."
