In Tune Recordings of Shows?

Postby Cmnaround » Wed May 02, 2012 6:36 pm

Any recommendations for downloadable shows on etree torrent or the archive that are in tune for playing along with? I like bit torrent to get SBDs - at the right speed so it is in 440. A lot of shows are a half step flat or sharp due to the recording speed.

I find that straight-up A440 works for most of the commercially available Dead/JGB DVD's.
They are usually very close to straight up in my expieience.
Sometimes if it is a little off I tune my high E (or whatever note is convienient) to be in tune with the band, then see where that is in the tuner, and tune all strings to that.
I play along with streaming Archive shows all the time.
Have fun!

Look for torrents that have pitch correction or pitch control. Almost all of Charlie Millers torrents on the etree site have a note somewhere on them that says, "thanks to Joe Blow for his help with pitch correction." I don't really know how close they are because I rarely try to pick stuff off of recordings anymore, but it should be a good place to start.

I don't play along that much these days, but when I did I would just tune to what I'm playing along with. No big deal! :smile: :smile: :smile:

yeah it actually wouldn't be bad ear training to have to tune by ear to a recording of music, if it's a half step or less. i've found that the more i tune by ear, the faster and more accurate i am at it. possible bright side.
