THEME: BRIDGES

Try before you buy! Guitar players know how sound vibrations are transfered by the bridge, and as I understand, sound resonates and becomes amplified in the traditional acoustic guitar. Bridges come in many designs and are moveable in electric guitars. A Third Bridge Guitar (electronic) is capable of even more special effects.

The People's Music Store Musoscorner in Newcastle is filled with fine instruments and everything musical and has 'good old fashioned' service.

As December the First dawns, around the globe, see these blogs, on theme day, for more about bridges. I tried to add the last on the list.

Love your different riff on the theme, Julia.

I don't know what the contest is, but you won. What a way to expand the concept of bridges. I know about this problem because I bought and old guitar and found the former owner had hacked the bridge. I just have never gotten around to fixing it.
