Ron Bracale's Music Wisdon

Just Intonation

Just or Pure intonation (JI) is the
Natural Harrmonic Nature of Sound
and may produce Healing Music.

Just or Pure intonation is the
Original and Ancient format
which is heard as in-tune,
as opposed to Equal Temperament
where in-tune is a learned abstraction.
