Does it work well for Shakuhachi? Can you explain more please? TIA!
So you find that A=442 works best for shakuhachi? What differences have you noticed using it?

The first thing i noticed was how out of tune i was in certain notes ;-) Now days I play my scales or long notes with it ( 5-15 minutes a day).
you welcome bro! It has some info in the website. Also, you can do your own ;-) practice the folk songs with it. if the song is in D minor, play it with a G drone , or just use different key drones. etc..
This sounds cool.

Can we practice the proposed exercice of this tunning CD with them as they talk here http://www.thetuningcd.com/piccolo.html or these tracks have some special waves in them?
Otherwise, its just use the instructions with a wave that do not make vibrato.
To the example on the above link, its just play over a G...
It may work?
A big hug!
