I have taught guitar for many years, and I have never really rethought how to tie on a string.  However, I want to cut down on string breakage, especially for the D and A string.  They always break at the front part of the bridge block where the string clamps down on itself. I think it is because the string vibrates against itself and cuts the wire.  I have 25 classicals in my classroom, and I'm getting tired of this.  THis is a solution for sure, because it doesn't make the string cross itself.

Very clean mix, and a great tune.  How do you get your video cam picture?

Great sounding guitar isn't it!  I bought one at a pawn shop for 300.00 and I couldn't have been more pleased.  It sounds better than most, and I have no desire to spend a fortune on another acoustic.  It's mine for life.    Model DR20E  97-5335, It has a Fishman Series 1 p/u.  It's finish has had a hard life, and it's coming of in large chips.

We are analyzing this song in NAC class.  We are studying Aboriginal Songwriters like Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Robbie Robertson.  We also listened to Birch Cedar Spruce, and Fall.  Very moving songs with purpose and great emotional power.

Sorry for your loss, man.  The song is a great tribute, a real labor of love.

Story
Introduction

 I've been writing a lot of music, and getting some rest for the next school year. A lot of changes in the last two years. I'm teaching at a new school for September, oddly enough, no music classes, just History, Sociology, and Geography.

Check out my tunes on Reverbnation.com/Anonymous V, and let me know what you think. If you like the tunes, pass the link on to your friends, I could really use some feedback.
