Hi Marcy - thanks for the invite. Hope to be sharing tips and stories with you all soon. I'm a beginner flatpicker. Every time I add a new fiddle tune to my repertoire, I jump and shout. (Yee Haw!)

Hi Marcy, Thanks for asking me to join you gals.

Busy right now getting ready for a gig on Saturday, I'm playing at Horse Cave Heritage Festival, 10.30 a.m.
My group consists of Dave Foster, on fiddle and guitar; Jim Hurst, guitar; and me on guitar and mandolin.
This is the ninth year for the festival, and I have played it every year so far! Hope I can still make it next year, and that no horses throw me or stomp on me in the mean time.

Hazel.

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

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

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 find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. 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…"
