Title: Curved tremolo arm

Abstract: A tremolo bar formed as a single curved rod having a handle portion with a first curved U-shaped loop, a second U-shaped loop, and a root portion for attachment of the root portion to a bridge system of a guitar. The U-shaped loops provide a secure means for a user to hold and operate the handle portion with one or more fingers continuously while playing the strings of the guitar without interference from the holding and operating of the handle. A user can insert or hook a finger into the loops to hold and operate the handle. The looped handle eliminates the need for the user to grasp and release the handle repeatedly during the course of picking and strumming the strings while performing.
