Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've played guitar since I was 11. Like many my age, I learned on the hits of the Folk/Rock era. Musical heros were the usual suspects: James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, Don McLean, CSN, ...you know the stuff.

Then I heard John Hartford and Tony Rice. My musical world changed forever.

I listen to everything and play as wide a range of music as I listen to. I flatpick fiddle tunes (and have lately taken to arranging them for fingerstyle), play jazz standards, and still have a fond affection for that folk rock that started it all.

Saturday at Shenk Guitars

I had a terrific Saturday.

One of my favorite places in the world to hang out is in "Wooden Music" -- Jim Shenk's guitar shop in Goshen Indiana.…

It's Code, Not Cliché

It’s Code, Not Cliché



Chuck, the owner of the local Ace Hardware, has made a practice of tapping a great, knowledgeable but inexpensive workforce -- retired old guys.



One day after I had spent about forty minutes getting one of the old guys to cut me 50 feet of 1/16" cable, Chuck approached me in the aisle as I headed toward the checkout. He wanted to know if the service I got from the old guy was OK.



"You know, Ed's 88." he said, "I like the idea of these guys… Continue

My New Red Bear



Got my new Red Bear in yesterday's mail.



It's got a wonderful feel and though I don't feel the "grips", it's better having them where they are than up as high as they used to be. The roundness of this "F" shape seems to make a smoother sound than the "C" I've been playing with lately. The "C" may be slightly louder, being pointier as it is, but the new "F" seems to bring out fewer extraneous noises.



I like a completely… Continue

Hi John,
Thanks for your comment. I'm glad that you enjoy "Vermont". I played it last night on a gig with a great vocalist, Bill Robinson.
I'll have to listen to the recording with Don again and get back to you with a more detailed answer...but the short version is that I literally do not have a clue what I am going to play before I play it! I approach it from a "jazz piano" perspective. It's a concept on which I have worked very hard over the years by listening, studying, gigging and experimenting combined with the opportunity of having studied with some wonderful people!
But I will get back to you with some spec's.
Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
John C

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…"
