Thread Name: Keeping my Martin in tune
Subject: RE: Keeping my Martin in tune
Sorry about thread drift everyone, but this is a really important subject (to me anyway).

So with the Paige you put the capo on THEN tighten? That would avoid the chief problem with Shubbs which is having to guess, twiddle, snap, test, reject, guess, twiddle, snap, test, reject etc* - while taking coherently to the punters (having already used up far too much time tuning), and then having to tune AGAIN etc etc, yes?

*the reason being that there is insufficient leverage in the Shubb to allow you to turn the knob after snapping shut.
