Violin Tuning Pitches
Getting my iphone stolen in Morocco turned out to be pretty good for my musical ear. Without an electronic tuner, I've had to learn to tune my violin by ear, from an mp3 of A440.
For me, the frustration thing about tuning by ear is the different timbre of the strings. Even when a string is in tune, it sounds wrong if you are tuning to unisons (like most guitarists do). Tuning to 5ths or octaves actually seems to be easier to me.
Anyway, I found these violin samples online. They solve the problem of tuning to pure electronic tone, because it's a real violin, with all the overtones. I figured I'd post them here, because undoubtedly I'll lose them otherwise.

I suppose I am a problem solver. Either that, or I am an organic carbon-based life form whose function is to convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. You could go either way on that. I'm into languages and stuff. I recently published my first book. It's okay, I guess. Lots of sex and drama--plus it's a true story. Let's see... What else? I like reading, swimming, playing music, and annoying Seda. KAPOW!
