Aindrias,

I recently posted a question on OMN about the tuning of an African thumb piano described in Henry E. Krehbiel's 1913 Afro-American Folksongs. My question was prompted by your piece on the European Folk Music Scale in Ethnomusicology Review. Here is the web link to my question: http://www.overtone.cc/forum/topics/african-thumb-piano-tuning. I would very much appreciate your take on it.

Regards,

Bob Hester
