Thread Name: Kipling with the Tradition
Subject: RE: Kipling with the Tradition
Rapunzel frails or picks, not sure how else she'd describe it. She uses dozens of different tunings and is fond of high capos. That's her new Deering which isn't quite as heavy in weight or sound as the Countryman, lacking any sort of tone-ring at all. My fiddling is rough-style inspired by Michael Hurley, Jim Eldon and this venerable old timer who uses a dolly peg for a mute and spits in his peg box to keep it in tune!

The noise is in the adjoining bar; we never notice it in the session, hence Rachel's composure.
