YARTer shouldn't have YARTed
Self-reference is a dangerous trap. You easily get lost in the mirror-hall.

that's a great reference, Fald, thanks. it took me to several other sites with even more valauble info. we music teachers keep saying this, but people don't always listen...

a very interesting read about the history of intonation. plenty to think about if the Well-Tempereds hadn't gotten their way...
