Hi Barry,

I'm happy to see you on this site ... maybe if we lived closer we could get together and pick a few tunes ... :-)

David Wilson reissued Twin Picking on his Perfect Hand Music label ... haven't sold all that many yet but then not many people know it is available on CD. In fact there are not many of today's flat pickers who have never heard of the recording. It was a fun record to make. Adam Granger came to Springfield and we recorded it over a weekend at Nick Sibley's house. Mixed it later at the Dungeon. I believe it is the first twin guitar album of flat picked guitar. We used separate channels for each instrument. Adam wrote a tab book but it hasn't been reissued.

Let's pick sometime soon.

Take care.

Dudley

Well as soon as I learn to flatpick, there should be at least two!

Hey there, Mr. Smith. Great to hear from you! My brother and I try to have a picking party during Christmas vacation every year in Springfield. Hope you and Susan can come this year. -Nancy Cardwell Erdos

Hi Barry, I'm in the phone book ... give me a call and maybe we can find some space in our busy schedules to pick a few tunes. That would be fun. Take care, Dudley

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…"
