Today a lady brought a guitar in she thought might need to be restrung. Clayton set it down near the door to the office so I took a look. Woah! My paws hurt just looking at it! The strings were a yucky brown color – not shiny like they’re supposed to be!
I went back to Mom’s chair to nap and got to thinking. What happens to bronze when it gets yucky like that? I heard Dad say “bronze” is what strings are made out of for those boxy kinds of guitars.
I looked up bronze on Mom’s laptop (I think I’m getting better at this typing thing). It said acids in the skin makes the bronze tarnish and corrode. Sort of like rust.
Which makes me think more – would I want to run my paws along rusty strings?
That sounds yucky and maybe painful. Rosanna the cat told me you can get sick if you get cut by something rusty.
Strings should be shiny. If they aren’t shiny, then they need to be restrung.
Wow, that’s a lot of thinking for one day. I think I better go take that nap now.
