Curt Fields replied to Dave Engel's discussion Picking up the banjo?
"Dave, You must have been at the Darrington festival. That was a great event. If you want to learn the banjo to do some simple back up work and to play some simple tunes, you can apply what you currently know on the guitar to the banjo fairly…"

Favorite Flatpickers
Tony Rice, Dan Crary, Doc Watson, Kenny Smith, David Grier, many more.....
Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
I enjoy flatpickin' the old gospel hymns and bluegrass gospel music, as well as pickin' traditional bluegrass music.

I like to back up singers and prefer to improvise solos "on the fly". I don't use tablature and prefer to play by ear.
Favorite Guitars
My primary guitar is a 2008 Martin D-18GE, and I own a '97 Taylor 710CE, a 1946 Gibson LG-2 and a 1972 Fender Telecaster Custom Deluxe (forgive me).
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I live in Kennewick, Washington and have been playing guitar off and on since the mid 1970's. I made the leap into bluegrass and flatpicking in the late '80's.

I also play a 1980 Gibson Mastertone 5-String banjo.

I play in several bluegrass groups in our local area including the Columbia River Bluegrass Band ( http://columbiariver.us ).

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…"
