Roger Ferguson replied to Dan Forney's discussion Help with vii chord in the group Theory; Beyond the Sound
"Great discussion! I agree B D F A is referred to by all the names mentioned here;  Bm7b5, G9 without the root, and a 1/2 diminished... it can also be a  Dm6.  I teach all kinds of music and find that how we; look at, remember and…"

Dan Forney commented on ganon's group Ear Learning
"Thanks! Looking forward to continuing the journey. Been working on learning by ear more recently, but nothing structured. I have found learning tunes by ear to be easier on mandolin than guitar, but I suspect I mentally convinced myself of that…"

Ear Learning

This group is for those interested in learning to play what they hear. All levels welcome - hope the advanced can help the beginners. TAB'ers are welcome too, whether looking to change their ways or simply interested in the discussions.

"Dane,     Haven't heard of a vol II. I asked Adam one time (at Kaufman Kamp) why he did it that way for Ragtime Annie and he said he judged that there was no real benefit in terms of making it easier to go to the capo…"

Hi Dan, I'm glad you enjoyed Twin Picking ... it was a fun recording to make and gave me a chance to spend time with Adam. Take care.

Hey Dan, it's nice to know that others are checking out our tunes. I checked out your page and enjoyed the tunes you posted too. I hope that part of the network continues to grow. Keep in touch - I'll let you know when I add more stuff to my page. Gary

Hi Dan,
On picture 4 the man on the left in front with the banjo, is he John Kootz from Charleston, WV? If not, it is such a close likeness I cannot tell the difference.

Hi Dan. Nice to make your aquaintance. I love Bluegrass and have just bought a Blueridge BR-240, so I expect to be going flatpick crazy for a while. Glad you like my Scottish arrangements.

Dan,
My office is still in Pulaski and I'm there a couple of times a month. Last month I actually moved from California back to Virginia, but I live in the northern Virginia area and commute down to the office in Pulaski a few times a month to help out down there. So I look forward to your move to the Blacksburg/Radford area. We need to get together and pick!
Thanks,
Dan

Hi, Dan, Oh, great! Just Great! ..more competition for the guitar contests moving this way! :) I'll hold open a pickin' chair and there should be a few tunes left to play, by the time you arrive! :) Just finished putting out a music fire, someone called desparate for Def Leopard, Hysteria, guitar tabs, and would you believe, ha, it was the pastor from the local church? So funny!

Hey Dan!

What is the big Left handed guitar pictured in your photos? The sign appears to say Grand Guitar something, but it goes by so fast I can't be certain. Hope stuff is going ok for you.

Hi Dan. What you are hearing is a recorded rhythm track with a click track. The camera that I am using to make the video is emphasizing the click track and de-emphasizing the rhythm. I record rhythm tracks for songs I'm learning at different speeds. I've found that it's better for me to use one track as a dedicated click track, then when all my tracks are finished I just leave it out of the mix. What you were hearing is one of my practice tracks @ 220 bpm. I was just playing it back on Windows Media Player. I'll post some backup tracks if you want. See if you like them. Later, Gary

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…"
