After a period of time with Tuning Tactics, I have decided that my sense of intonation is a figment of my imagination. Good god, it is unforgiving and GREAT. Congratulations on a superb book and concept. Well explained and VERY useful.

WOW! Tuning Tactics is an incredible resource! Initially I was dubious whether I would be able to hear when my note is out of tune, but the drones on the Tuning Tactics CD really allow me to find the pitch center. Tuning Tactics and CenterPitch actually make intonation practice enjoyable. Even long tones are interesting and fun!
