    When using a digital readout, what is the rule of thumb to check tuning (assuming you are not blessed with a great ear in the first place) - eg. the note should be in tune a few seconds after it has been played? Or if left to ring, should remain in tune for as long as the tuner senses it? I guess this brings into play a few other things, like age of strings, type, quality..? And as previoulsy mentioned in another thread, pluck versus bowed..

    Thanks for reading!

    This topic has been addressed before Andy so do a search. The conclusion was to pick the pitch that most in tune with most of the notes you play. Arco = settled arco, pizz = stable pizz, etc.
