I thought that sometimes the strike-slip as being like dragging a bow
acrossed a violin string as the sides of the fault "bounce" along while the
reverse and normal faulting are more like to being like breaking a limb off
a tree. I thought I had seen some "stepping" of P on some of the earthquakes
off the west coast...my imagination?
