Happy Spring, Time for music

Holding the Strumstick

 Arm at Big End...Yes!

 

Arm on Top...No!

 

An ancient drawing from the 1980's of how we tie the Sliding Knot on the Strumstick Strap. Boy Scouts and Sailors may recognize it as a variation of the taut-line hitch, and no doubt Knot Aficionados will argue over which knot it was in 1703 in the British Navy. We call it a Strumstick Knot!
