Allen Shadd commented on Dan Miller's group Walnut Valley
"Phillipe, it was great seeing you this year. I hope the next time we will have some time to pick a few together. I was certainly a little busier this year than in years past. I was number 25 in the contest, right before Jake so I know how you feel…"

If anybody is in the area, I will be conducting a guitar workshop on Sat 2/6 at Denison University in Granville Oh. I think the workshop is scheduled for 12 noon and a performance that evening at 7. In addition there will be performances by the Andy Carlson band on Saturday and the Infamous Stringdusters on Friday.

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Started playing when I was 7. Played professionally off/on over the years. Began competing seriously when I was about 30, about 13 years now. Still do some, it makes me practice and I really enjoy seeing my heroes, friends, and the young kids that are playing so well these days. I get lucky once in a while in them, I've still lost way more than I've won.
Do you have a website?

Hi, Allen....Sorry for the delay in getting back to you; not sure what Steve meant -- maybe a mispelled???? Or, it could be a "secret code"!!!!
Hope Lauren and you are doing fine and have a good Christmas.
Dan & Linda

Is that bass for real?! Mexico, California, Texas or Florida?
At 1:10pm on December 17, 2008, Allen Shadd said…
Yes, the bass is real, a Fla bass. It weighed about 9 lbs.

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…"
