"Dan Crary used to use a custom baritone Taylor often. Gives you some more tonal options. If I remember correctly he was tuned D to D, and would capo at 2 for standard tuning."

Baritone Guitar for Flatpickin/Bluegrass

Martin recently began making a Baritone Guitar tuned B to B.  Looks interesting.  Has anyone had a good experience using a baritone for flatpicking or bluegrass?

"It's a great tune. I play backup to Rick Thum on this several times per year. We play it in A. Have a look and listen.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXa2nMcOC9c"

Hey, Andrew,

Thanks. I don't know if I'm as advanced as you might think. I've been playing a long time, and I have messed with some fiddle tunes here and there. But mostly I've been a strum-and-sing guy. I've only just recently started focusing any real effort on flatpicking.

I'll give you a ring after the holidays when my schedule gets back to something hopefully resembling "normal."

Hi again, Andrew,

I am indeed interested in following up on getting together to pick. I'll send an email to the address you listed in the discussion thread.

Up strums

Hey FPers!Could use some advice, or just start a discussion, on the merits of strum patterns that go both up and down, versus Boom-Chuck with straight down strokes.I bring this up as I have recently broken the habit of resting my wrist on the bridge after many years of struggle.  The result is that I am faster, cleaner, and am now able to play with a heavier pick.  I now imitate the Brian Sutton model with a pinky posted to the pick guard.While this has made my speed on fiddle tunes and…See More

David Wayne Martin replied to matthew's discussion What is the best right hand position for flatpicking
"I have noticed that others have shared what I have experienced - when it is a fiddle tune or lots of single string runs, I drop the pinky - but when its straight rhythm with strums - I go free hand.  I really like the way my D-28 rings out when…"

"Yes It is worth it.  I will be back and I live in Hawaii. I wish I only had a six hour drive.  Great venue of music and venders.  I really enjoyed the flat picking contest.  "
