I made this up because I did buy the applique. It does have a purpose and that would be if someone was used to playing with frets. I found the frets to get in the way. I could not get the intonation correct with the frets. If you play a note and slide down the string it stays the same until you pass the fret so if you start at E on the D string and slide to A it it will it will play E F F# G A but will not play in between the notes and if your strings are note exactly 328mm the notes will not be on.
At first, i didn't want to use a crutch due to,,,,,, well i'm guessing ignorance. i've never really had a lesson on anything. I once tried to get a music store to give me lessone on music theory. they tried starting with the pentatonic scale and tab. I told them that's not what i wanted and they didn't understand. So, i stopped that and started learning music theory from the piano. (that is the easiest instrument to learn on, by the way), But, i think i am over the no crutch thing. i am going to try this thing for now. I'm going to florida next week, so i might try to hook up with fiddlerman to get one of the fingerboard things.
Also, FIDDLERMAN, you are a professional musician right? do you have any performances next week?????? If so, i will try to make it to one.
Barry, it is basically fat fingers orr skinny fingers, The shorter one is the most acurrate for people who put their fingers on the line and the other works for people who like to keep their fingers right before the line. What I do is find where the forth finger is placed and mark it with a pencil. Find which applique fits to that mark and them install that one.
