Fortunate to have been born into a fantastic musical family. Learned to read music and play piano at very early age. 1st fretted instrument was ukelele, age 7. Began playing guitar at age 10, 5-string banjo at age 15. Began following Wes, Django, Earl Scruggs, and Bach.
Still following them!

Hi Mr Carlini,

I've got a question. Not sure if it'll make any sense because maybe it's something that should be obvoius (but it isn't to me).

I love the way you do "Moonlight in Vermont" with Don Stiernberg (an I've stolen what I can). On the bridge -- "telegraph cables sing down the highway...." part -- you seem to almost randomly decide which beats to let ring (a very few) and which beats are left-hand muted (most of them). It sounds so perfect the way you've done it, but it seems random. So is it? ...or am I just missing the obvious count on which you are damp, damp, ringing the rhythm?

unfortunately i moved away from my teacher and was gone for 17 years. by the time i got back he had passed. anyway my problem as i see it is putting together solos, and a sound. i feel that the main problem is just playing more, i got into this rut of just practicing scales cause it's easy mindless stuff and it keeps my chops up but does nothing for the mental side of things. i have a vibe player i mess around with sometimes who is a PLAYER. he comes up with these scale and chord centers and spouts this formula stuff but doesn't seem to be able to explain to me what the actual thought process is (for various reasons that don't need mentioning) anyway i get frustrated cause he just blows by me.

anyway i'd love to find out where i can unlock this formula

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…"
