A controversy exists as to whether artists who play stringed instruments perform in the so-called "natural" (sometimes called the "just" or "pure") musical scale, in the "equally tempered" scale, or in some other scale. A related question is whether these artists characteristically enlarge (augment) or contract (diminish) certain intervals as compared with their theoretical scale values.
