"Willie, I fear you are right. its a beautiful beast but somewhat surplus to requirements now that I have the HD-28 as well as the J-45. I'm lusting after a Southern Jumbo True Vintage so maybe I'll trade in the Moon & J-45 for a nice…"
"Gibson J-45 (2005) - My main daily player & favourite guitar. Short scale makes learning Bluegrass tunes so much easier & her sweet tone is ideal for playing country/rock etc. Really nice balanced tone but a touch light in the bass…"
I would absolutely LOVE to get to go to Kamp, but life, finances, etc., so far have conspired each year to prevent that from happening. I DID get to meet Gary in person after having done guitar swaps, emailing and telephone conversations and such over a 2-3 year period. He's a good guy and I think it would be really cool to have a whole room full of lefty guitars and guitar players, although I'd really like to have one righty, just so they could understand what we routinely face surrounded by a sea of "backwards" instruments ;-)

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
"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…"
