Classical string solutions exist with finite momentum at endpoints. I will explain the main features of finite endpoint momentum, including an extension of the Green-Schwarz action. Finite endpoint momentum is useful in the study of holographic energy loss by light quarks. I will show how simple analytic methods suffice to extract the main features of the relevant string motions, and I will present some preliminary phenomenological results.
