It looks like the Larrivee family may be totally Americanized. I received an email today for items from the Larrivee store. I see that they are calling toques "beanies" now. The horror!  ohmy  

They will always be toques to me. (toooks)

This, by the way, is a beanie.

I found out yesterday that the consulate in Montreal is ready to approve my green card as soon as I send them my passport. They will always be toques to me, however.

In snowy Michigan we just call them hats, or stocking caps when we get fussy.

In New England we would call that a hat.  Definitely not a beanie.  I had never heard of a toque before this thread.  But the picture of the beanie, well that had me laugh.

Happy for you, I remember reading about your ordeal. I can't imagine.

From nine years ago - nearly to the day.

Riffing off the conversation about Peter Yarrow covering the headstock of his Larrivée

I usually cover the headstocks of the guitars that I play out.  These are now known as  "guit-toque"s by people who have grown familiar with this peculiar behaviour. Perhaps inspired by this bastion of Canadian culture.



I do it for three reasons -
  • I frequently bump the headstock of my guitars on low hanging obstructions.  I stand while performing and wear my guitar fairly high. I change guitars during the sets, so there's a fair chance I'll bump the headstock into a low hanging monitor, or heaven forbid, a television, or a microphone.  I'm just as happy not to have little dents and divots in my headstocks.
  • It's funny to mess with guitarists who think that my ablity as a player is somehow correlated with the name on the headstock.
  • I'm not into talking "guitars" when I'm out performing. It's much more interesting to relate to people as they relate to music than it is to geek out with a guitar-freak who wants to engage me with his obsession with brand names and other minutiae. These  conversations are often a masque for  the narcissism of small differences.*


*No disrespect for anyone here. Everything in its place: This forum and guitar-centric get-togethers are the places for guitar-centric conversations, but I don't care to have conversations about guitars when I'm out at a gig - a performer for a broader audience.
