Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I started off learning how to play banjo in my high school bluegrass band and then switched to guitar because I loved the sound of hearing my friend Matt Poff, who helped instruct guitar, play fiddle tunes and rock tunes and pretty much anything that a guitar can play. My dad had always had a guitar laying around but I guess I never took the hint. So I learned from Matt and my dad to start off with. I started going to festivals around the area with the high school band like Poppy Mountain, Lexington Festival of the Bluegrass, and Augusta Heritage Festival. I now play in a local band named the Grass Stains and play with some really talented people including Matt so I'm always learning.

Hey Jarod! Good to hear from you. This reminds me I need to keep working on the song I'm writing after being inspired by Russ.

I'm still working with his "Exploring the fingerboard" book and it really has been eye opening and pushed me along.

Hope you are well and getting to play alot

You missed a great Mt. Stage show...with a couple of surprises, too. I didn't know Frank Vignola was playing with Mark O'Connor and I didn't know Mark Cosgrove was going to be there either, so those were two great surprise additions to an already amazing lineup.

I have been to Augusta, but only to see some performances. I've never taken any classes there, although I'd love to. The day job always gets in the way.

Good to meet you on here, let me know if you are ever up this way, I'm always looking for someone to pick with.

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…"
