And I completely agree, I've always liked half-step down better than standard tuning and Phi just amazes me. I don't really know how this ties in, but dammit, I'm googlin' it.

Sometimes I wonder why they even made standard tuning go from E to e when clearly flatted or double flatted sounds better. I mean, tuning to Eb is good but it might be inconvenient for the rest of anyone who's playing with you, but at that point why not just go D to d and say that's standard. Maybe the guitars of the past had shorter scales or something.
Listen. I'm sorry.

Articles like that are so obnoxious. Ignorant people blathering on about frequencies being attuned to our DNA n shit. Reminds me of an old co worker that I had who kept talking about how he was going to record music tuned to Saturn's frequencies.

Out of curiosity, I will read further into this subject, but I sure as hell won't be using that site as a reference. It holds absolutely no water:

1) First of all, there's no author listed. I understand it's only one guy writing for this website, but I start to question credibility when I don't see an author (never mind the website name).

2) Terrible editing and formatting further contribute to an already decreasing level of credibility. Someone even commented on the 'About' page stating, "Sorry, just hard to take a site seriously with grammar and usage errors."

3) I'm happy there were at least some sources cited, but they were paltry when compared to the whole. That first paragraph under 'Music Frequency'? Holy shit. How am I even supposed to take that seriously?

Sorry if I'm being harsh, but this is why I hate 'blogs'. If you can't even write about your own opinion without those three, extremely basic qualities then I deem you and the presented information untrustworthy from the get-go. Plus, when you're writing about "parapsychology and alternative science" (aka 'pseudo-science') you better have two to three times as many sources as your average news article because you have to work that much harder to convince your audience.

I'm not picking on you, OP, so thank you for the post. Unfortunately, it's the whole "focus on the message, not the words" mentality that irks me to no avail. I'm not about to let my generation create a sub-par standard of writing

When all is said and done, Eb standard is my go-to tuning!

That's the biggest load of bullshit I've heard all year.

432Hz is not half a step down by the way. Ab/G# is 415.3 Hz, quite far from 432Hz.

Tuning to 432Hz would just make it difficult to play with others or to other music.

I'm not even going to say anything.
Go to the Musician Talk forum.
Search for 432.
There's 3 or 4 threads on this.
Read them.

Agreed, it's used primarily by people who spend most of their time playing with themselves...

432Hz is used by a choir here in town to make it a tad easier to hit some higher notes. I've thought about doing this with my band, because there's a note on a couple songs I really strain for.

And this is easier than simply transposing to another key how, exactly?

Ever play with jazz groups? Bb to A isn't just that simple for the brass section. Moving the tuning slide is.

You're the vocalist for a jazz group with a brass section? Who knew...

My bad.

Nope, the folks I sing with have a pianist, though, so it's still hard to transpose on the fly or them. It's a stage piano, so they can take it down to 432Hz. We haven't tried yet, I'm just musing. I was using that group as an example.

The songs I sing are both in C, which is way easy for the pianist. It's a different set if finger stretches for the pianist if we did Bb.

It can be practical, but probably not for everyone.

So.......you were just presenting an issue that didn't exist to in order to "be right"? Shame on you!

FWIW, I assumed you probably weren't based on your earlier posting, but I was willing to go with it to see where it lead.

Perhaps the pianist you work with can't transpose "on the fly" but many can, as key transposition to suit the vocalist's ability is pretty much the industry standard, no?

I'm not saying you shouldn't try 432 if you want, I just can't for the life of me see a practical argument for doing so in 99.9% of the cases that exist.

Of course it's not like music is a needs-based endeavor, so there's that.
