Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

It's time to get your applications in for scholarships to Kamp this year.  We've updated the web page ( http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com ) and you can download the applications forms there.  If you know anyone who would qualify for a scholarship (i.e., has the motivation and desire to learn his or her musical instrument but lacks the financial wherewithal to attend), please encourage him or her to apply.  Application consists of answering a few questions concerning your desire to attend kamp and what you think you will get out of it.  We will be awarding the scholarships as soon as practical so that folks can get enrolled and should you not be awarded a scholarshipk, you will have time to pursue alternate means to get there.

We will have two instruments in the raffle this year - one is an OM guitar that is being built especially for the scholarship fund by Seth Naugler.  You will remember the magnificent dreadnought that Seth built for us in 2008.  It was a beautiful guitar and the OM he is building will be great, too.  You can check Seth's work at http://www.nauglerguitars.com, and the blog that he wrote while constructing the 2008 guitar is at http://nauglerguitars.com/kampguitar/.  Information on the second instrument in the raffle TBA.

Should you want to get in on this year's raffle, or to contribute to the scholarship fund, you can do so at http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com/donate.htm - chances are 5.00 each or 6 for 25.00.  

One of our major contributors is sponsoring a candidate on his own this year, and we're happy to see that.  We've also received a pledge from someone that will go a long way towards another scholarship.  But the majority of the scholarships are financed by your contributions, large or small - every one counts.

For answers to any questions or for more information, you can send an email to duscholar@mchsi.com.

In addition to the web site, you can make a contribution or get in on the raffle via snail mail.  Just send it to:

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…"
