    OK, this is slowly driving me nuts. Is it A3 or A4 that's 440 Hz? I've seen examples of both floating around the Internet, and I don't know who to trust. Which one is right? Or can both be right? Says who? Help? :(
  2. A4 iirc

    OK, but what's with all these people calling it A3 then? Surely there must be a reason for it (and I mean something other than plain ignorance ;))?
  5. guitarists probably ;)
