I have been calling Merlefest the 2nd best fest in America .. I now believe that spot is a tie tween Winfield and Merlefest..

Hey Bill,
Dan & I are ready to go...we've got our reservations, and I'm working on getting some other people to come for the day. I had a great time last year....even though the rain caused a "little river" through our booth last year. We'll see you soon! Say hi to Marilyn. Cindy

I went to Merlefest in 1997 and 2003. I keep an excellent souvenir of this festival and the atmosphere.

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years.

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
