Kentucky Waltz Solo Flatpick Guitar Louis Ruoti

Love to flatpick the waltzes popular in Bluegrass. They can (and should IMO), be played slower than not, and leave lots of room for interpretation and innova...

Hi Louis.  I'd love to pick!  I'm not sure if I'll be at Darrington this year.  Our band didn't get booked because we're not Trad enough! However, if we don't have anything else booked, I would love to go!

I've gone vegan and may look at gluten free as well. My daughter has gone that route - it seems to becoming acknowledged as a good health threat. Looking forward to picking with you sometime in 2012!

Louis,

Good to hear from you, hope you're well.

Hoping to get down to the ANZA this winter.

Maybe see you there or at Wintergrass.

Best of the holiday season to you.

Perry

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…"
