But the fourth and fifth are a bit further out than with

2^(11/19) = 1.4938
2^(8/19) = 1.3389

whereas

2^(7/12) = 1.4983
2^(5/12) = 1.3348

although the major third is slightly better

2^(6/19)=1.2447

whereas

2^(4/12)=1.2599

No, if my saxophone is going to have all those extra buttons to play in
tune, I'll bit the bullet and go straight for 53 :-)
Although playing a legato chromatic scale might sound a little like a gliss
:-)
