If you're smart enough to -tie- frets, you're smart enough to -tighten-
   frets. It takes less time to do than describe. Seriously-- why are
   people --replacing-- loose frets??

      I'm a little reluctant to share something that might seem almost
      immoral, but what the hell, I make my living playing the lute and I
   tie
      a lot of frets, so I'll chip in here: when I go, as I do almost
   weekly,
      from my home in Seattle, where the weather is always perfect for
      gut-strung-and-fretted instruments, to a place like the mountains of
      Montana or the desert of Tucson and the humidity is 1% and my frets
      (usually it's 1, 5, and 6 on my main touring instrument) start
   slipping
      and sliding around, and I don't feel like re-fretting, I tape them
   down
      with masking tape.

      I want to know how you tied them on in the first place.  You must
   have
      really strong fingers.
