    Yeah, I was less fond of this one than his others. Too much subjectivity, too much assuming that others can simply "earball" it as well as he (and all his professional experience) can.

    I found it very useful: I always tune by ear, and never thought of not tuning in perfect fifths, so it was very helpful to me. I tried today and felt weird during tuning, but the intonation between strings improved a lot.
    I need more practice to recognize the sweet spot - now is just "a little more" - but it was something completely new to me.
