  1. Bill:

    The photo you took of Braud is amazing! Notice that the A string is
    not lined up with the other strings. This is because Braud has
    apparently just plucked the bejesus out of an open A and the string is
    in fact beginning its travel. Braud was one of the great New Orleans bass
    players, he could pull the strings as hard as any of them, and here’s the
    visual proof. Of course you can hear him pulling them off the bass on
    those old Ellington records.

  2. bill- that “how the west was won” brought back memories of summers spent as a little boy during the war (2, of course) at my grand-uncle’s ranch in kansas due east of wichita. bests jon randal
