Willie-O, As I remember the concert, Bush played fiddle all night. I don't think he broke any fiddle strings but he used up quite a bit of horse hair.

Herr Doktor, I'd say I use good strings (SIT Royal Bronze medium) but I wouldn't say they are superstrings. I'm not a physicist but I've read the popular stuff like Dancing Wu Li Masters and Hyperspace so I have some idea what you're talking about. In light of Schrodinger's wave equation and the uncertainty principle and seeing as how physical continuity is only an illusion caused by a very rapid succession of static events, perhaps my strings don't actually exist at the time they should be breaking and when the next quantum event occurs, they appear intact. Of course they may actually have broken in a parallel universe. This gives me some hope that all is not lost.

Thanks for your help,

Disheartened
