Beth,

I've tried the intonia for a short time. I'm having strong difficulties studying K Flesch scales. Tuning is one of the biggest problems. However, I don't think Intonia would help me with these tasks.
I tend do rely on my body and mind. Not on externalities. I beg your pardon if I'm being stubborn, or rude.

I've been studying The Barcarolle June, Tchaikowsky, in A minor.  Though I prefer this key to G minor, this last one is the  most used. I can finger this version (G minor) in many ways, but I can't choose the best one. Thus, I ask you to help me.

Thanks for any attention.

My feeling virtually in Austin
Beth,

You make me feel living in Austin, at least virtually.
Such a prompt response, and nice. Thank you.

I thank you too, Elke, for your precious comments. Try this Barcarolle, it's lovely and not so difficult. You may discard, for instance, the double stops passage.

Hughs,
Fabiano

At your service, dear sir :) Hope the fingerings and shifts are clear.

Hello Fabiano, I'll be happy to help with fingerings. I'm not familiar with this piece or arrangement, so always nice to see new things.

I can't help you with the Tchaikowsky, Fabiano, but just a note on Intonia and tuning: 
For tuning I do not use Intonia but the Tonal Energy Tuner, as it gives me exact readings of Hertz and not just a white line. When you use Intonia in playing make sure you have the sensitivity set to "normal" and not to "tuning".
I am not sure Intonia is the right help if you play very fast scales. The notes go by too quickly, and all you can do there is go back afterwards and check for patterns (like a second finger not low enough consistently). But when you play slower scales Intonia sure would be a good help with intonation. - Unless, of course, you have perfect pitch and don't need an external "ear". I don't have perfect pitch, and while I can compare pitches with ring tones and drones I found many times that my ear easily gets "trained" to perceive something as right which in fact is off. So I use Intonia a lot to train my ear to the right sound of a pitch.
