    Hi, buddies


    I have a speech stutter sometimes when I am most nervous.
    I also have trouble with r sounds in words.
    I would likely not say DaAddario correctly.

    I gotta disagree. Sure, inept pronunciation is simply laziness. That wouldn't negate a thoughtful review, for me.

    A great player might be sitting in front of me, playing a D'Aquisto, mispronouncing it, and then starting to describe its attributes, but I wouldn't say "Hold it right there... I don't trust anything you say after that word."

    Rickenbacker now, on my grandfather’s 1936 lap steel it’s Rickenbacher. Wish I had a pic so you could see the logo. It’s really different.

    In my town growing up, there was a kid who had the same last name, he pronounced it “de uh dair ee oh”, but yes, proper Italian pronunciation is “ Da darr-yo” . Kind of like D’Aquisto. I’ve heard people say “dee a qwisto” when its really “ da- keesto”.
    I understand what you’re saying but as long as people are communicating and understand each other it seems ok to me unless we’re in Italy!

    I wouldn’t dismiss the reviewer unless he was talking about a fine wine! lol

    People don’t want to be ignorant, but sometimes when someone properly pronounces something from a foreign language, it can sometimes sound pretentious.

    I'm far more concerned with the reviewer's objectivity. Is a fair comparison of strings made ? Is it comprehensive? Does it cover many styles of play? Is the critique fair, and even-handed ? Was the in depth research done? Personally, I don't care if he pronounced D'Addario "Monkey's Uncle", if he did his primary job right.
