An extra bit for banjo fans

A postscript has been added to the discussion of the banjo, a new section 5.5.3. It augments the previous discussion with some new measurements showing the effect of changing the banjo bridge to a wide range of alternative designs.

Chapter 6 added

A complete draft of Chapter 6, on hearing, perception and psychoacoustics, is now in place. This one has taken me rather outside my area of expertise, so I hope I haven’t said anything too misleading.

Chapter 4 now complete

The gap left by attacking Chapter 5 before Chapter 4 has now been filled in. I think it should now read continuously from the start to the end of Chapter 5 (so far). Some loose ends to be tidied up, though.

Chapter 5 taking shape

Chapter 4 is on hold because of a need to get Chapter 5 drafted. That chapter now has a lot of content, mainly about plucked-string instruments but a bit about the vibration behaviour of violin bodies as well.
