"Thanks Phil, I'll look them up.  My definition of Americana has always been bluesy folk, and that's what I like about it.  I'll most likely enjoy the above you mentioned."

Phil Manuel replied to Bryan Floyd's discussion Americana music
"Check out. The Wilders, and Pokey LaFarge. It is difficult to get widespread agreement on the genre though, as it seems to encompass blues to bluegrass to western swing to folk to country western."

Americana music

Hello everyone!  As much as I really don't like to put music into genres, I guess I need to to find out more about Americana music.  In just, I gather that this is a roots driven music - but can someone please go more into detail of it?  Can someone recommend some good guitar players that fall into this category and some good listening?  Thanks.See More

say Bryan I spend some time, at least once a year, in Waynesville OH (usually fall). Looks like that's about an hour from you? We should play some tunes someday if we get a chance.

no worries Bryan. I'll probably not be back there until the fall sometime. Last year we went early to attend the Hotmud Family reunion shows... but normally we get there in November sometime.

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…"
