    Yes, definitely. Most useful stuff on the planet, for a musician.

    If it moves, but shouldn't - Gaffa Tape
    If it doesn't move, but should - WD-40

    I think the term 'duct tape' might be familiar to the cousins,
    But I've also heard it referred to more interestingly as 'helicopter tape'...
    (no idea where that comes from!)

    We called it 'hundred mile an hour tape' in the military. Fix anything to a vehicle that needs to be and its good up to a hundred miles an hour. Lol.

    Some hundred mile an hour tape and 550 cord and you're good to go.

    Love it. Used it all the time when I worked in advertising... on shoots... during promo events. Great stuff. Not much call for it since I became an Internet guy but I still have a roll or two on hand.
