Can you tune a Piano?

Can you tune a Piano?

Postby jojofroyo » Thu Aug 18, 2011 8:52 am

So this year my camp is bringing out a piano to go along with our open mic happy hour. It sounds pretty good now, but Im sure after driving out to the playa, and after gate road it will need to be tuned!
I remember seeing a guy a few months ago saying his art project was going to be bringing pianos and going around tuning pianos, but I cant find that thread anymore! I think it was under arts and performances, but I'm not sure. sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.
Do any of you know who that was? or can you tune our piano for us on playa? I would hate for it to sound like shit!
Let me know! Believe me, who ever comes and tunes it for us will be handsomely rewarded with champagne, maybe a tortilla...

I remember that thread as well. I think the discussion might have been in the Booby Bar thread. I know there was talk of pianos and such in there.
Where is your camp gonna be located? I love playing pianos on the playa. I have tuned a few pianos, but no longer have the tools.

I love tuna fishing!!
hah

Supposedly one the guys who does the dueling pianos in the silver legacy is gonna come play for our happy hour one day too!

This piano I think is the best investment we've made for our camp! especially since we got it for free.
