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.

Dan Forney replied to Cathal Cusack's discussion Of some interest for celtic/trad guitar players? in the group Celtic Flatpicking
"Cathal,     Guess you're not at kamp either! Hoping to make it next year...and drag Mark Thatcher along too. I'd be interested in the tune of the month. I'd like to start playing some of the sessions around here (yes, there…"

Dan Forney commented on Bryan Floyd's group Celtic Flatpicking
"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

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…"

ETHAN DEUTSCH left a comment for timothy allred
"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
