The second is an arbitrary unit of time. The hertz is the reciprocal second, therefore also arbitrary. Any pseudo-numerological derivations that involve the properties of the number 432 are therefore also arbitrary and are not "universal".

It's total, ****ing, annoying, stupid bullshit.

Like I've said many times, "troll threads get the most airplay". And five pages of this crap would tend to bear that out.

Think of the more productive use you could put to your time. For example, watching the entire, "Xena, Warrior Princess" series. How does this rubbish even compare to an ultra-violent, Grecian golden age, action adventure, with lesbian overtones?

Seen all of that? Then go with, "Cleopatra 2525". The entire series is available in one inexpensive box set.

And, since both of those series are cancelled by about a decade, you could "necro bump" yourself back to life while watching them.

What an useless thread. Nobody cares in what tuning you are (Eb, E, D, whatever, in between Eb and E, they have all been used) as long as the band members are in tune with each other. And all your guitar strings are in tune. Some bands use tuning in between E standard (A 440Hz) and Eb standard or something between E and F (AC/DC, It's a Long Way to the Top is in F. Also some AC/DC songs are in between Eb and E, some are in Eb and some are in E standard). It might matter if your songs have a huge range in vocal lines and the singer can't sing that high/low. And that's why people play in A 440 Hz, it's a standard tuning (classical bands play in A 442Hz). And if the singer can't sing that high, you can transpose the song or change tuning to A 432Hz for example.

You clearly know nothing about nothing so do us all more informed people a favor and sit in the back of the classroom with your mouth shut where you belong.

Mainly I feel really ****ing irritated because everyone else in the band is using A440Hz so my bass is continually out of tune in relation to their guitars.

They're not very happy with me either.

If I shove a crystal up my ass at the same time though I get an unsettling feeling of contentment.

Oxycodone will give you the same feeling at the standard 440Hz "A", although I don't know if it's available as a suppository.
