I've been researching C6 copedents (because I can) and of course one useful source is Winnie Winston's book, all the more interesting for being rather old now.

I answered "other" because I also have 5 knee levers, which as Paul suggests is close to becoming standard.

Blocking is your "default state". Lift your palm to play a note, then return to your default state.
That's how the inside of a piano works and I certainly find it helpful to think that way. ...

There is no logical reason to have a shaft at all.

John is right about the tone difference. Instead of the traditional BC F# chord on 4-5-6, you can get the same chord two frets back on 3-4-5 with the Es lowered, but it sounds nothing like as powerfu ...

Ken has highlighted the reason I suspect some players resist keyless guitars - it's not the concept that they dislike but the resulting ergonomics.

Apart from GFI, which has a dealer in the UK, what other makers are there who make keyless unis and would ship to this country? Not being lazy, but I can't find a search which helps.

Great players (and I'm talking any instrument here) often have such natural talent that they've never had to analyse their playing, and thus have no way of explaining what they're doing.

Yes, of course its function is A7. When I play bass I just play an Eb because it sounds right, without agonising over whether it's an Eb7 or an A7 (on the grounds that the audience don't either).
