    Re: Out Of Tune

    Nearly*. Normally instruments 'go out of tune', and a person 'sings out of tune'. I suppose, though, it would be possible to imagine a person starting to sing in tune and then going further and further out of tune.

    Either an instrument or a person can be out of tune:

    'The piccolo was out of tune with the rest of the woodwind.'
    'George was out of tune with the rest of the choir.'
