Description: In this class we look at how to tune a chanter using a Korg Tuner and a chart of comparative cent readings. This chart enables us to roughly see if notes are flat or sharp. Next we use a Mark Saul tuner to set the notes on a chanter. And finally we use the tuners to set our drones and tune using our ear. We learn the Pros and Cons of using a tuner to tune our chanter.
