I don't think I've ever seen a guitar stay in tune if the
twang bar (thanx, Adrian!) is used.  I've got a Strat that'll
stay in tune forever unless I touch that bar.  It's the nature
of the beast, I suppose.

I can't recall how often Tom used the bar when I saw him play,
but he took *forever* tuning between songs.  I wanted to run to
the nearest music store and buy him a $40 tuner!!

Tangent: a friend of mine said he'd seen a record on eBay by
George <Greek last name> that had both Robert Fripp and Richard
Lloyd on it!  Anyone know what this might be?
