n.— «My description of Wind Machine music is sort of a jazzy/yet folk type of New Age.…They also use an instrument which they claim to have invented, called the Guitjo. According to the liner notes, a guitjo is a 6, 7, or 8 string guitar with the normal “bass” strings replaced with treble strings. This gives a lighter, bright sounding quality to their music.» —“Re: Wind Machine” Usenet: Dec. 4, 1990. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
