It would be nice to be able to adjust just 6 string model strings in cents to play along with some recordings without having to physically tune the guitar. If it can be done in WB HD I can't figure it out.

I deal with this by modifying the recordings to be in tune with my Guitar (Use a program called Transpose)  Works great.

Thanks I've been wondering about that. Most of the stuff I want to jam with is like 4 cents out either way. I'll give that a shot. Thanks.

I'm not sure why but virtually every recording I try to play with is not quite in tune.  I load them into my Transpose software and it's easy to see that they are slightly out of tune.  When I adjust the pitch slightly, they sound far better with my in tune guitar.  Transpose makes this very easy.  You can also slow them way down without changing the pitch to try to learn the licks.   This makes playing along much more enjoyable.  (most of the stuff I like to play was done in the 60's so that might explain the out of tune) (old analog recorders)  Very cool software package - and it's not that expensive.

Sorry!  It's called Transcribe! (by seventh string I believe)
