Verrrry interessstingggg......

Picture this, guys... since I play mine tabletop UPSIDE DOWN, pulling the strum toward me, I am always pulling the string against that little pin, and SPINGK! There goes the midrange D AGAIN! Just when I have the new one broken in and no longer stretching more and more as I play... SPINGK! The attrition on the tuning peg hole gets to be a factor with all that replacing.

Vaseline there, huh? (OK, Spaw, KY)

I vill trrry theesss nexxxt!

Wait till you hear how I plan to squeeze a whole second set of chord possibilities out of the backup harp without changing a string or any felts. Now if only I could get that second harp into the hardshell case with the good harp.
