Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Currently not playing in a band, but used to, I just plain love picking! I play the flat top, mandolin,and 5 string, I like playing the more progressive styles (or current) of New Grass, swing and Jazz. Still Love the taditional dont get me wrong! but I just love the challenge and the feel of the more progressive. Played alot of New Grass Revival back in the day!! they were a huge inspiration to me, as well as tony, did alot of his tunes as well, Love harmony vocals, love to do occopello tunes, I love to sing,prefer the higher tenors but sing all parts, family is from tennesee but I grew up in Michigan just @ blocks away from the first bluegrass festival in MI I used to sneek in all the time , that was in 1970, from then on I was hooked, started playing flat top at 8 yrs of age then banjo at thirteen then mandolin just 2 yrs ago, my first tune on the mado was chrs Thiles "Ode to a butterfly" it was a blast to learn and then Little Rock get away in which was more challenging but equally as fun, all in all I just love to pick and sing, My passion is still as strong today as it was when I first started learning in 1969,Im a progressive Hillbilly!!!

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."

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…"
