This thread comes out of a suggestion by Rick Fielding in this thread"A trick to find the RIGHT key from a CD "
Someone started speculating on how some people use chords as their foundation, and others use melody lines. And Rick said: I'd be interested to hear what folks think about the "chords" vis a vis "melody" thing. Can you (or anyone else who's interested) start a thread on it that might get a few more in? This title is a trifle "tuningocentric".
So that's what I'm doing here.And I suggest people go back and skim through that thread before posting here, since it's really a continuation of that aspect of the thread.
