GUEST,murray@mpce.mq.edu.au Capo. Cheat or godsend? (90* d) RE: Capo. Cheat or godsend? 01 Aug 00


Dick. The fiddle not having frets, if you used a guitar-type capo, your open strings would sound stopped instead of open. The gadget you describe just has the effect of moving the nut down the fingerboard. That is what a guitar capo does anyway. It makes the fret in front of it act like the nut.

By the way, Dick, your posting reminds me of an old joke. It is a letter to a typewriter company that goes something like:

Dear Xir,

I am writing becauxe I have found a problem in my new machine. Everytime I press an x I get an x instead. I hope you can xend me a new one xoon.

Yourx xincerely

and so on.

Murray
