this definitely works better than whatever i was doing before (harmonics
usually) ... still,

... i have now got my head above the linux-audio water, only to be
king-hit by the tsunami of guitar-tuning, intonation, pickup placement
etc etc

i probly won't be resurfacing for another week (or until i get over this
overwhelming out-of-tuneness paranioa i am now suffering - thanx
everyone, ha ha!), but i'll hopefully have a tuned version of The Sailor
up, along with seperate audio tracks for those of you who want to have a
go at mixing it!!!

thanx to all and sundry for the tuning info and the kind words!
