|Description||Green uses mathematics to demonstrate the impossibility of perfectly tuning musical instruments. Green notes that the human voice, followed by the violin, is the instrument that can most accurately perform music, and that errors in musical performance are more likely caused by the physical limitations of keyed instruments themselves than by performer inability. He puts forward suggestions for the under scale, the compound under scale and the compound upper scale. Includes seven sides of musical notations.|
