Guy Hill replied to Todd McFarland's discussion What brand do you play?
"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…"

"I'll second this comment. Blue Chip picks are brilliant & Matthew a pleasure to deal with - he even does a lefty version!"

Guy Hill replied to Todd McFarland's discussion What brand do you play?
"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…"

Guy Hill replied to Kenny's discussion Drills, Warmups and Practice Routine. Need a Recommendation
"I'd strongly advise taking a look at our very own host Dan Miller's excellent "Flatpicking Essentials" series. I have the 1st 3 volumes & they've helped me enormously."

Guy Hill replied to Chad's discussion Blue Chip Opinion by an Ex-Skeptic
"I just love my TAD 40 "lefty". I keep trying other picks for comparative purposes, but always end up using the Blue Chip. Fully worth the $35 IMHO."

Guy Hill replied to Shane Bumgarner's discussion Where do you live?
"I live in a small village near Romsey in the beautiful Test Valley, Hampshire, UK. I travel to work in London every day, so lunchtime picking would also be a possibility!"

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am a UK-based lefty & started playing guitar late (aged 47). After 3 years learning fingerstyle I "converted" to flatpicking on my 2nd visit to Kaufman Kamp (2008).
Do you have a website?

Hi Guy,
Thanks for that I have a couple of recordings that i have done of the song. I'll try to work out how to send it to you. Cheers

Guy,

I don't see no flatpick in your hand in your picture here! :-)

Glad you're here... this flatpicking thing is addictive, isn't it?

Hey Guy!

I got an awfully complimentary report on your Moon from Gary over on Leftyfrets!

Guy,

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 ;-)

Hi Guy,
I had it in one of Steve's Kamp books. Maybe '05? It was an intermediate version. I'll see if I can dig it up for you for next summer if you like. I'm really glad you enjoy that version of "Fiddler's Dram".

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…"
