Reply To: practicing with a tuner
Hello, Megan When I was first given a fiddle I took some lessons in the Suzuki method. Ultimately I was bored and not having fun. Thank you Jason for developing Fiddlehed! Suzuki calls the resonance you discovered a ‘Ring’ tone. There are several ring tones. A note played by stopping on one string will cause an open string to vibrate. This is one way that you can tell that you have good intonation. Try it with A on the G string; G on the D string, D on the A string, and Both G and D on the E string. There may be others but this is what I remember.
