Thread Name: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
Subject: RE: Why Musicians Put Their Name on Instrument?
Slight thread drift, but also come across musicians who give their instruments names. We did this as a bit of a joke during a ceilidh band trip to Spain when we went to a Sunday market with all those woven wrist bands with names on them: the 2 cellos became Pablo and Alfonso, and my accordion became Carlos, but the best one was one of our fiddle players' choice of ......Fidel!
Another friend who plays various stringy things has "Big Mandy" (octave mandolin)and "Little Mandy" (standard mandolin) - then she bought a cittern which is...... "Kitty"
