Fiddle tuning weirdness
I just got a new violin and while I was playing at the luthier the tuning was fine. I got it home and tuned it with three different tuning apps. E, A, and D tuned fine to the app. But G was insane. When the tuners indicated a perfect G, it sounded terrible. Even the scales sounded way off. So I tuned the G by ear so that it just sounded right. The tuners say that the open G string is an F#. But it sounds fine. Is this something that happens?
