 Re: Thoughts on Playing the Clarinet in Tune

A few comments:

"Test left hand 12ths"
-Why not also test right hand 12ths?

"Tune to the player 'up the ladder'"
-In my wind octet we often get the best results if we all adjust our tuning to the bass note. But different contexts may requite different approaches. I'm not sure why tuning to the person above you should be a rule of thumb?

"One note which is a 3rd in a chord is a bit lower than if it is the root"
-This is only true for major thirds. Minor thirds need to be tuned higher.

"And the same note as a 5th in a chord, is a bit higher than if it is the root."
-"a bit higher" is really rather vague. Much more useful would be to know exactly how many cents higher or lower each interval should be tuned for pure intonation. Charts for this are readily available on the internet.
