Carl Witthoft, the questioner is referring to the built-in instrument tuner in the Apple Logic Pro digital audio workstation package, the chief competitor to Avid Pro Tools. apple.com/logicpro

comment What is the technique Adrian Belew utilizes through-out : “Elephant Talk” by King Crimson?
Just a comment... I used to live near Adrian Belew (near Nashville, Tennessee) and we were friends -- we haven't talked much in about fifteen years. All I can say is that he makes many, many sounds and guitar effects that no one can emulate, using effects pedals, MIDI and synthesizers, loopers, but most importantly, his fingers and hands. His elephant sound is only one of his most famous sounds.

comment Is there any substantial evidence that a constantly fluctuating pitch is considered less musical than more discrete tones?
Are you talking about the use of a lot of vibrato in instrumental performance versus the use of no vibrato?

comment How does string gauge affect intonation?
Welcome to Musical Practice & Performance, Luke! Dr Mayhem and I had to edit your question extensively because you seem to be a beginner who does not understand the correct terminology in describing parts of the guitar. I hope that you can still recognize your question after we have rewritten it.

comment What do the 3/4 and 4/4 numbers mean?
RegDwight wrote ""One two three four" (backbeat) is a very American thing." Actually it is the quintessential African-American rhythm which was originally brought to the New World centuries ago by Africans who were enslaved, and has become a signature element of the many musical styles that have since emerged not only in the USA, but also all across North and South America and the Caribbean Islands. These musical styles have impacted popular music throughout the world in the last 100 years since the advent of the commercial music industry, recorded music and radio and television.
