Norwegian Wood


Recommended Posts

I was curious what guitar  made the sound in the Beatles song. Turns out it was a Sitar.

The name is still a puzzler. They said they can’t name the song “ A Cheap Wood”and the first wood that meets that description is Norway Pine..Norwegian wood would be like calling a “Canada goose” a Canadian goose.They were supposedly in Swiss ski lodge with cheap wood paneling. Noway  Pine is a cheap wood , but it’s grown in North America, nothing to do with Norway. Another wood  could be Norway Spruce, most commonly used as a Christmas Tree,but again no real connection to Norway. Why a Swiss ski lodge in the Alps wouldn’t be using Swiss Pine which isn’t a cheap looking wood ( I think they must mean cheap looking because it blotches easy when being finished) kinda surprises me.

Would love to have a music room or bedroom lined with Swiss Pine.
