piano workin

Spent a few hours carving/painting/attaching new black (sharp) keys for the piano today, woot. Also started tuning it. I ended up killing my fingers (blisters and whatnot) since I lacked proper tools, but it started to take shape. I didn't break any strings, even (though Biderman did, haha). So this evening I ordered a tuning kit, to aid in this venture. I know, I should just hire a professional, but A) I'm not sure if this piano is worth it and B) I'm going to wait until the piano is in a (more) climate controlled environment. Tuning wouldn't last long where it is now. But tuning it myself is proving to be very fun, and you get some really weird sounds at different times, when you have each of the strings for a note off the right amount, the harmonics are really fascinating. Anyhoo...

a note, I found this guide which has a lot of good information: members.aol.com/chang8828/tuning.htm- I can't wait until I get my tools, and to try out technique. mmm. I'll be using my electronic crutch, though.
