Re: maximum tatum (one tatum, two tata)

When I was in tuning school, we did a couple things.  First, we were told that
if you want to count beats between notes and/or be able to tune exactly that
aboutg 26 per second was the practical limit.  We also got a piano and tuned it
oddly.  Anotherwords, notes did not necessarily progress normally.  A particular
sequequence might be A B A C E G G.  It was interesting that when this was done
or a piano was tuned to something like A431 rather than A440 it was far more
difficllt to impossible to follow rapid note sequences since expectation played
far less a part in the exercise.
