After reading the "Common fiddle scales" thread, I noticed something odd.
I’ve been playing fiddle (and no other instrument) for quite some time now. Today, I tinkled out a few tunes from various books, using a small piano keyboard, and I was surprised at just how much some of the notes seemed slightly out-of-tune. I understand the whole thing about equal temperament etc, but it still sounded quite "off", compared to how I intonate on fiddle.
Does anyone else who plays a piano or related instrument find a similar thing, when listening to a fiddle played in tune, by a decent player? Mainly the major 3rds (on fiddle) being slightly narrower than piano major 3rds.
For me, maybe it’s got something to do with not being exposed to real instruments, what with lockdowns, etc.
