But really, interdependent tuning is not much different that tuning a feedback loop where the output affects the input, which affects the output, and so on.

Bill,

 

If I ever pull my 12-speed out of the basement, I'll bring it to you for a tune-up.

I haven't played guitar in years. One of the reasons I gave it up is because I have a hearing loss that made it very difficult for me to tune the high E. I could tell that it was out of tune but couldn't tell if it was sharp or flat. And this was long before the advent of electronic guitar tuning aids....

"Should we not learn how to add numbers and be totally dependent on calculators?"

Knowing how to tune a guitar by ear and taking advantage of tools to speed the process are not mutually exclusive.  Do you ever use a calculator?

OK if you want to talk about cheating with technology, I do use a metronome iPhone app. Even traditional metronomes are technology, just mechanical.

Cheating with technology, I say. Use your ears. Should we not learn how to add numbers and be totally dependent on calculators?

The only disadvantage of one string at a time is that with all strings off, you can do a better job wiping off finger grime.

That's cheating! It does the tuning with DSP--even worse. OK, I admit that I use a tuner to tune my acoustic, which is also cheating. I really should learn to tune by ear. Well, I do, by listening to beats. that gets thr strings in tune with each other, but if the first string was sharp or flat, they re all sharp or flat but together.
