Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am from Rome, ITALY but I am steady in Milano, north of Italy. I started playing when I was 8. I've never bought and electric guitar in my entire life. I started with fingerstyle which I still play a bit and I love flatpicking and crosspicking and singing. I am the proud owner of a 1997 Dana Bourgeois D Vintage Herringbone. And I think acoustic people are genuine people.
Do you have a website?

Hi Andrea,

Actually, the guitar is a James Burkett AJ. It's Brazilian RW with an Adirondack top and probably the nicest guitar I've ever played. I recommend him highly! Here's his website http://www.guitarjtb.com/ and here's a link to a review of this guitar by the original owner of this guitar http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Guitar/product/Burkett+Guitars/AJ/10/1

Yesterday night.
Well......there was a big party in my neighbour's home. After hours spent drinking, making cocktails, mohitos, gin tonics etc...... some people asked me to go home and pick my guitar up. Incredibly for Italy where acoustic guitar music is not well known, a guy asked me some old Delta fingerstyle tunes, and I know few. Then some people asked for other tunes, me and my girlfriend harmonized our voices singing some James Taylor, Tim O'Brien, and so on......Well, after a while my hands were very warm and I went on with some crosspicking and flatpicking, more less following Bryan Sutton's tips..... I am not in the condition to say if the GREAT sound of me playing my 1997 Bourgeois was just my drunk impression or I was really so relaxed and my hand so warm that I've played all the tunes so well.......probably both things but I wasn't very very drunk, in fact this morning I woke up with no headache. Anyway.....the evolution tip of the day is: unless you are a GREAT player, unless the acoustic guitar is your day job, if you can, even if you are at an ADVANCED LEVEL, before you start your performance, always take at least a 1 hour time to warm up your left hand and your right hand. You'll see the difference!! Remember that a precise and regular right hand is one important secret for a successful flatpicking. ..........Now here in Milan there is a damned grey and rainy morning. What's better? So let's start again playing.

Best to all my friends

Andrea

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 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…"
