Hello all,I just received Vol 1 as well as the Speed, Accuracy and Tone book. Think it would be fun to work through it with feedback and encouragement with others. Let me know if you're interested.BrentSee More

"I have been using the zoom h4n 299.00
Acoustic guitar mag had an article a few months back
comparing several and this had everything on my list + 3 I didn't think of
I had the chance to sit and listen to the Kruger Brother in NC
and recorded it…"
"Thanks guys. I have a Tascam device that I use to loop tracks, slow tracks, etc. I'm looking to record myself and listen back to what I sound like in a jam setting. Any ideas on that? I'm leaning toward a Presonus firewire audio interface…"
I have both a Zoom H2 and a Tascam GT-1. Neither are very expensive and both create good quality recordings from their built-in microphones. I've fooled around more with the Tascam for practice because it will allow you to loop, change…"
Forgive me if this should have been posted in the recording group; but, as a beginner I'm not interested in high level multi track recording devices, mixers, and high dollar mics and pre amps. I just want to listen to myself practice so I can hear my tone during my exercises and with play-along tracks to hear my timing and phrasing.I can't decide if I should get a zoom like the H4n or get a relatively cheap audio interface and a mic. I have access to two shure sm57's. I've tried recording…See More
"When I started playing in 2007 I bought an HD28. I listened to as many guitars as I possibly could; and, the tone of the HD28 always "spoke" to me. It was as if that was the only guitar that I could imagine representing me and my voice. I…"
Dreads I play an HD28 so I guess I like those; but, I really like the voice of many guitars.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I"m a 39 year old from New Orleans who started playing guitar a couple of years ago. I grew up with a very broad interest in music. Traditional, old timey, and bluegrass is probably my least familiar genre; but, I'm am now totally hooked on this music. I love the parallels to jazz and the way that a general language exists to study, learn, and express in a personal voice. I hope to get there.
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
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
"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…"
