Subject: RE: We need a word for finger-squeaks
I've heard it called 'speak,' but I'm not sure how it's derived.

I've been using D'addario half wounds lately, and they've helped a lot. A little speak is actually good, giving a live, human, and authentic feel, but too much (and I'm a lazy player for sure) is hideous.
