How to stop a singing mast?

I had this problem with my last boat, and it turned out to be pulling the mainsheet too tight for the topping lift when not sailing. Eased the mainsheet a tiny bit and the vibration noise disappeared. I applied the same cure to a friend''s boat who was amazed the cure was so simple. Obviously may not work for others, but it''s a simple thing to check on to see if it works.
