Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
I can't even think of favorites at the moment. Whatever I just learned, usually. But the old ones are good too, especially when I think of new ways to play them.
Favorite Guitars
My old favorite: 1994 Grand Marquis LSH. And, my breakfast table guitar: 1957 0-18. And I'm LIKING the new Collings D1-A!
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've been playing music for a long time. First classical piano, then folk guitar, then bluegrass banjo, then flatpicking guitar, and along in there I learned some dobro and a bit of very basic (but very fun) acoustic bass. I don't play piano anymore but I'm glad I learned it first, it gave me a great musical foundation. Especially the counting part.

Mostly I play bluegrass, traditional Irish, and folk/blues/singer-songwriter kind of stuff. It's a dream of mine to play in a country rock band.

Oh, and I teach a bunch, when I have time. Private lessons, as well as at music camps. And, I write a regular column for Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. If you don't subscribe, you should!

Hi Kathy, I had just started working out an arrangement of "Freight Train" when I got my copy of FGM the other day. Thanks for the help. I hope to meet you at Kamp in a few weeks.

I wish, I would love to get together with you and pick some songs. Unfortunately, Kamp is a week after our annual family vacation to Table Rock Lake.

Hi Kathy,
Never met you before, but I love your articles in FGM (specially when it's about x-picking), and I always read your post on fp-list. I hope I will meet you somewhere and pick with you. Are you going to Winfield ? If not, no problem, you come in Paris France !!!
Thanx to be my friend.
Philippe.
PS : I'm a fan of Pottier too.

Kathy,
Thanks for accepting, and the encouraging words. The hearts willing but the ability is lacking.
Kathy's there's nothing better than sitting down with my guitar on a Sunday afternoon to practice, realizing my fingertips are really beginning to hurt, looking at the clock and seeing that 4 or 5 hours have passed.
I've enjoyed your instruction in FGM...that instruction has been the reason for some of those 5 hour sessions.
Hope you enjoy your time in east tennesse when you come to visit and be apart of Steve's Kamp.
Make today a special day!!
Charlie

ah yes, Mary Gibbons, the guitar player with Laurie Lewis ; they have done a really great show near Paris (Villejuif), I was there and I've missed you, next time.
It was in 2000 ? ok. The same year we also had Kathy Kallick (the 1st of april, my last daughter was born that day, I'm sure :^)). So, 2000 was a great year for the west coast bg gals in Paris :^) !!! we love that bg here.
Châteauroux ?!? it's near the middle of no-where, are you sure they use euros ? :^)) just kidding, I've family there. uhm...nobody fom Châteauroux around ? :^))
I don't know a luthier in Provence, but there are very interesting luthier in France.
oh yes, the rate..., I understand, good for me to come in US where I hope to meet you in "real".
Philippe.

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

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…"
