Subject: RE: We need a word for finger-squeaks
I've always called it "string noise".

I heard a story, probably an urban legend, but interesting.

Ronnie Hawkins was recording when he said to his guitar player,"What's that sound when you take a solo?"
The Guitar player said,"That's just string noise."
Ronnie said,"I don't like it. Play it again without that noise."
The GP said,"You can't play it without that noise. Even Andre Segovia makes that noise."
Ronnie answered,"And you'll notice he doesn't play in my band."
