And here are two more clues I love. "Jimi Hendrix's style" (4 letters.) ROCK seemed possible. LOUD maybe? Nope, it turns out it has nothing to do with music. Picture him in your head and what do you see on his head? AFRO.
The best was "Big tier?" (5 letters.) I keep wondering when I'll have enough experience to not get tripped up by these. It's not LOGES or anything like that. You have to pronounce "tier" differently. Rhymes with pyre. The answer is TWINE.
