Beyond the 12 tone boundary: Here is an early student of mine. He and his father are master luthiers. They made my 6 string 12 tone acoustic guitar. They specialize in making microtonal instruments. Check out the interview then google his books if you want to be a trail blazer on guitar.

Definitely a move forward in instrumental progress. I play guitar fairly well, but I can't grasp all this...makes me glad I'm primarily a drummer! 😛

Yes but can you intentionally hit all those blue notes?

@kensmile4u Yes, every one of them... It's called glissando! 😉

@cmadler hahaha When you are out of notes always do the the glissando!

I've never understood the whole micro tone/fretted instrument thing
Fiddles and other fretless instruments have always had it 🙂

Do you have any written or recorded xenharmonic pieces to share? I would be fascinated to hear anything with intervals of less than 100 cents.

12 tone is the best tone! 😛

12 tone is my favorite system as well. I find the harmonic combinations more appealing. But one man's treasure is another man's trash. There is always room for someone different. This student quickly became bored with established intervallic theory.

@kensmile4u
I didn't get bored, but I did invent my own way of looking at things, all based on the 12 tone.
I'm biased for this reason into believing that you can do things with 12 tone that simply aren't possible in any other temperament.
Consider as well that Indian music, which I love by the way, while it has microtones that harmonic structure of the ragas are still 12 tone based.
