First of all, thanks to all the nice people who gave advice about the
Steinway 1098. It was very helpful. Everyone agreed that it's hard to tune.
Beyond that, opinions vary.

Now a simple question for you. I've enjoyed lurking on this list and
learning stuff about the mechanics of the piano. If I'm interested in
learning some of the rudiments of tuning pianos, what are the good
resources for doing that? I do not intend to become a tech or any such
thing, but would simply be interested in learning the
acoustics/physics/whatever of tuning, hoping it will improve my
musicianship a little. Any advice you can give is appreciated.
