This is more a rant than anything but here goes. As I clock more years behind the bass I find my ears continually improving to the point where I am crippled if something is out of tune. Couple examples. An out of tune piano. Death. I feel lost. I know that it is an inherently 'out of tune' instrument but I think my existentialist hell is to play with an out of tune piano for eternity. A hard blowing (overblowing) sax player. Is it just me or are guys like this almost always sharp? Fretted EB. I get calls for this sometimes. A drummers bass drum tuned to an out of tune note. The bass drum is so close to the bass. But... I actually find a horn player with good intonation the easiet to play with. I did a duet gig with a sax player buddy last weekend and it was great. What are others experiences? Coffee!!!
