OK, next rant. When our band played 20+ years ago, we used to spend an inordinate amount of time tuning and tuning, only to end up approximately in tune. Our groupies used to harass the crap out of us for all the danged tuning we did. So this go-round, we all agreed that having an electronic tuner was mandatory. Now, everyone takes 60 seconds to tune up, and we all are in tune with each other. Some of us even have rack-mount tuners or Boss stomp-box tuners for quick adjustments. So what's the deal with all these "purists" who disdain using electronic tuners? Do they think that every member of the band is going to have an adequate ear to be in tune, and pronto? That list of Bass Player Offenses (over which I am still LMAO) even had it in there. Of course, our good ol' pal Jeff Berlin hates the danged things. Now, I have a good ear, and can tune by ear if I have to, but why the heck would I? I mean, I am TRYING to play some MUSIC here! I WANT to be in TUNE, and I WANT to be in tune NOW! AND I WANT THE REST OF THE BAND TO BE IN TUNE, TOO! SO GIVE ME A BREAK, OK? ... OK? ... OK.
