PapaWhiskey Black Diamond Strings (45) RE: Black Diamond Strings 23 Dec 03


Of course in the wayback we didn't know anything about string gauges, alloys or such.

Thom Bresh tells a story about Merle Travis. They had played a festival and were walking back to the car. An earnest,awestruck young folkie came running up, and begged Travis to tell him what kind of strings he used. Travis told him, "Why guitar strings, of course" and got the car. They headed down the road with a genuinely puzzled Travis still trying to figure out why the kid asked him that, "what does he thing I use, violin strings?"
