[TCML] secondary variable frequency

Hey all,
     I've got a theoretical question.  Adding a top load lowers the 
tesla coils resonant frequency, what about adding a bottom load?  Would 
putting a toroid or some kind of capacitor between the coil and ground 
lower the coils resonant frequency?  I think I may have touched on this 
subject before, but for a different reason.  In any event, will a cap in 
series with the secondary (on the grounded end) lower the coils resonant 
frequency, and is there any way to raise it beyond what it naturally is 
(inductor in series possibly?)  This is a theoretical question, I'm not 
really that interested in the possible negative effects on performance 
(although I am sure they are a consideration.)  Thanks.

Scott Bogard.
