    A friend of mine recently had this same problem.
    If I recall he got an adjustment tool from the Stihl company.
    I can even hear him play over the chain saw.

    I've got big hands. But not that big. I'm pretty sure Tal Farlow played that one. :D

    It’s a bit like a sitar. I used to have a small, beginners’ model, a baby sitar.
