"Great job Karl! That's one of those tunes I'd like to build some speed on, along with several dozen others (too many tunes, not enough "free time"!) I don't know the fellow playing mandolin, but kudos to him, too. The way he…"

Heya Karl, I enjoyed all your videos! You were asking about my Thompson guitar - I really love it, I'm not sure how to compare this one with the one Robert Shafer has, I didn't get to play his hardly at all. Mine looks almost identical to Robin K's, except his is a "Thompson", where mine is a "Bob Thompson" (Bob's son made Robin's). They sound almost identical. I don't remember for sure, I think I gave $2600 for it. My only complaint at this point is the action is a tiny bit high up near the nut - I will probably make my own bone nut & saddle for it when I get the chance, and adjust the action a bit.

You gonna do Echoes this year? Barry already called and asked me to room with him - I won't know for sure til the end of this week if I can get that week off, but I'll probably go if I can. I might do Augusta, too, if I can afford it - Robin tells me you will be doing "official functions" there - cool!

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…"
