Gregory Burke replied to Michael Kennedy's discussion Have you ever tried playing in the classical guitar seated position?
"As of yesterday I changed to using a guitar strap to hold the guitar at the height I want and not rest it on either leg or use a foot stool.   This is based on a recommendation in the Developing Speed, Accuracy, and Tone guide by Dan Miller and…"

Gregory Burke replied to Peter Lucas's discussion Rhythm players to hear in the group Flatpicking Essentials
" On the album "Meeting on Southern Soil" by Norman Blake and Peter Ostrroushko, the song Oklahoma Redbird is an excellent example of FP Essentials Vol 1 rhythm guitar, with some great bass walks by Norman. "

"Michael, You get it!  The more you use the capo to transpose songs the more it will become second nature.  Thanks for the correspondence.   Greg"

Gregory Burke replied to Dan Miller's discussion Have Any Questions? in the group Flatpicking Essentials
"Hi Michael, There are a lot of simple charts online that show you chords and what they will be when the capo is on the different frets. The main thing to understand is that when you put a capo on a fret, it raises the guitar a half step. …"

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 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…"
