"I like finger style too, all sorts from Pierre Bensusan, Bert Jansch, Townz Van Zandt. Can you give me a song/ artist that inspires your fingerpicking, just so I know what artists and style you are talking about?"

"Well, mine's was built in 2004 and bought in 2008 - I've had it just over two years. Plenty scratches and flaky laquer now - nothing major, mostly pick marks and scratches from having great fun... :O)"

"Steven, cheers for the photo's very nice guitar you have! its nice to see another martin with the bearclaw marks. I think the bearclaws add 'character' to the guitars as dents and scratches do, cant wait to get the 1st dent/scratch…"

"Hi Chris, Congrad's - the D-18 is a fine guitar :O) A couple of years ago I was in a similar situation to you (same budget / one guitar opportunity) and managed to find a D-18V. Mind you, I had to travel all the way from Cornwall to Cardiff…"

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…"
