"Seems to me if you have the old pickguard you can just trace it out. You can practice on a used manilla folder until you get a good result. Just take your time and you can't really go wrong. Have fun."
Hi Jeremy. I mostly learn scales and modes from handouts that teachers give me, and pick up different tips on appropriate ways to actually use them from all sorts of sources. I mostly run scales/modes for a combined RH/LH warm-up, and I feel that it gives me the benefit of opening up the mysteries of the fretboard. If you'd like, I could scan some of the handouts I've received and e-mail them to you, along with brief explanations of what they are. I'm always happy to help people out where/when I can.
Hey Jeremy, we don't play out much anymore, most of the time it's more fun just to get together and pick. We still get together every week and jam. I also go to the jams at Vine Grove and BBC from time to time. Is there a lot of jammin' in T'ville?

I just now saw your comment to me regarding the Cardinal Stadium show. First off, thank you very much for your thoughtful gesture! I still miss Jerry everyday...he was a good one. I found that show a few years ago and have enjoyed having it in the collection. I'm in Bardstown, just down the road from you. Drop me a line at email@example.com if you would like to pick a few. I'm always looking for someone to jam with. Thanks again.
Yes, he's mine. One of the best benefits to living here. I play guitar almost everyday and I swear we do not have one picture of me playing one. All the pictures I'm in are from hunting or fishing which I also do a lot of. Where, when did you live here and why did you leave?
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
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…"
