Heh, heh. The stories I could tell about my own playing...
...if only my pitch hearing was good enough to hear my own problems.
We agree. My point in raising the different pitch systems was to refute the notion that we need to undertake extraordinary measures to make a tuba that centers the needle on a Korg tuner up and down the scale. That's too narrow a definition of acceptable pitches, it seems to me, and how we approach intonation differs as we move from situation to situation. By "extraordinary," I mean measures that overlook other requirements, such as sound, flexibility, clarity, and so on.
