Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

For several years we have raised funds through Dreadnoughts Unlimited for scholarships to Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp by a variety of methods. Chief among them has been a raffle of a quality musical instrument. We are not going to have a drawing for Dreadnoughts Unlimited at kamp this year, but will continue to raise funds by other means.

Thanks to generous contributions from the winner of the Naugler guitar last year and from other supporters of the scholarship fund, we will be able to award scholarships for kamp 2009. Applications are currently being accepted, and everyone who is motivated to advance his or her musical skills is encouraged to apply. Information on how to apply is at http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com - send 'em in now....

One reason for not having a drawing this year is to avoid confusion among kampers. A drawing separate from Dreadnoughts Unlimited has been set up to give away a Proulx mandolin, and the funds raised by that raffle will benefit the Studdard Family Scholarship. It's a good cause, and deserves your support. For more information, go to the following:

Seth Naugler is building an OM guitar that will be displayed at kamp for your perusal. It will be given away at kamp 2010, and we will begin accepting donations after this year's kamp sessions for that raffle. This will be a fantastic "multi-purpose" guitar - it will fit "mature bellies" better than a dreadnought - it will hold its own in a jam - it is going to be a fingerstylist's dream. Seth is a world-class luthier - check his web site out at http://www.nauglerguitars.com and the blog he wrote while building the 2008 DU guitar at http://nauglerguitars.com/kampguitar/.

Your support over the years for the Dreadnoughts Unlimited Scholarships has been fantastic, and is greatly appreciated. Without you, it couldn't happen.

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…"
