Chris, I've enjoyed your articles for a long time. I especially appreciated the one about your recovering. I hope all is still going well.

Yup, Chris. We've tapped the next person on the list - it's a young guy who wants to play the banjo as well as Ralph Stanley. Thanks to your contribution as well as others, we're sending six students to kamp this year. Three to flatpicking, one to mandolin, and two to bluegrass banjo.

Hey Bud, good to "see you around' this place. Will you be at Kamp again this year?

I found the most magnificent old book store that you'd find magical; I need to tell you all about it, so plan on lunch one day!

Hi, Chris, Good to see you here... well I guess I would, wouldn't I?

I sure enjoyed the David Grier concert you put together in Marshalltown. I'll hope for more such concerts in the future.

Oh, and I finally took the time to subscribe.

Castle Ridge is playing at Rock Creek State Park this Friday night (6/27). We'd appreciate if you'd let people know.

- Mark

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…"
