String Haiku

April 30, 2010 15:24

Strings old, cash too low

Six months, twelve months, eighteen months

Dominants last long


Man say “Hey, you’re hired”

Money returns, we’re all glad

Restaurants and new strings


String Mall makes good deal

Dominants on lower three

Choose your own E string


Wrapped package arrives

Feels like Christmas time again

Anticipation


Old tired strings find trash

AGED means change in that order

Silver winks at me


Pirastro for E

Comes with little plastic tube

Beats Dominant E


Peg dope is my friend

Turn peg toward you not away

Maybe backwards – oops


One string change per day

Tighten too far, string goes snap

Fiddle now ready


Bow coaxes sound out

Stretching string makes mournful moan

Chromatic tuner


Writing string haiku

Brings home warm fuzzy feeling

Violin and me
