Re: Should I ask for an unequal temperament?

Thankyou for the replies. Can I just check that ET is Equal tuning and UT is unequal tuning? That shows how green I am. Adolfo Barabino had not prepared his ideas too well but I know what he`s getting at. I`m on his side anyway. He has a nice accent too. There was a Radio 3 demonstration a few years...

Fingers and thumbs.

At 68 I have decided (almost ) to learn the piano. I read one useful rule yesterday. Don`t play black notes with your thumbs. Are there any others to learn after that or am I already a pedagog?( Should be spelled Pedagogue but it`s such a silly word .I don`t want to encourage it ).

Why learn more than one key?

If most pianos are using Equal tuning , why don`t the printers just change all the music to the key of C?

Should I ask for an unequal temperament?

Is it a bad idea to ask a tuner to tune a piano with a Bach temperament? Do tuners ever pretend to do it and give you a standard equal tuning anyway? "He`ll never notice".
