To Fine Tune ‘er Or Not To Fine Tune ‘er
So I got myself a violin. The banjoness of the banjo is starting to wear on me. My goal is to slowly transition to bringing the fiddle to sessions in about a year.
But I digress. The violin I got only has the one fine tuner, which supposedly is preferred by the better players, or so I hear. But everyone I see has four fine tuners. Is there a reason Irish players eschew the single tuner? At the very least it would seem easier to tune in a crowded, noisy bar with four fine tuners.
