Subject: RE: Dear Dr. Folkenmusik
I have heard that the late, great, Josh White had a performance trick in which he would deliberately break a string (How'd he do that?)take it out, and replace it whilst still playing on the rest of the strings, and continuing to sing. Still singing, he would then pull the new string into tune and finish the song. The whole thing, start to finish, done without hesitation. Is this true? Has anybody seen him do this.
