Says it's in tune

But when I play a E major/cmaj7 progression the open B really stands out and ****s everything up.

Oh, you're one of us.

Ignore it or it will niggle away at you forever. I heard it's because a fretted instrument can never be perfectly in tune. G and B can sound overpowering and ringy sometimes.


EDIT: here isMy thread on the same subject form ages ago.

After watching a Tony Rice video some years back, and hearing him explain that "tuning is not a perfect thing just as life and such", he explained why(I forget all the technicalities, and he knew them) and showed how he would re-tune slightly for playing in different keys, really help me to relax and realize this is something I just need to live with, and adjust as it comes at me.
