Intonating Your Guitar

I called BS about intonation best practices, but i was WRONG!

Everybody on the Interwebs talk about the importance of intonating your guitar in the playing position, rather in the supine, workbench, setup position, ‘cuz gravity (#LOL). I always called BS on this, because how could a 90-degree rotation of the instrument at the same altitude above sea-level possibly affect the sound of strings? Am-I-Rite?!? I’m wrong!

Scientific tests performed by Yours Truly confirm that there is a very noticeable difference in the position of the instrument that translates to how clean the notes sound, and if you intonate your instrument in the “setup” position, you’re doing yourself a disservice, and your sound will suffer! #TrustMe

Intonation; simple, but not as easy as you might think.
