    Thanks. I do hate changing strings, so I'll use this bit of "wisdom" as my excuse from now on. Sadly, I find that they do break eventually.
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
