Hi Making Sawdust....Yes there is an old time jam every 2nd and 4th Tuesday at the Center for the Arts at 68 S. Main St. in Phillipsburg, NJ, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. I missed the first one, but got to the second one last Tuesday. Old time is mostly fiddlers, of course, but there were other guitars besides mine, as well as some dulcimers, banjos, and mandolins. There are some other jams I've heard about that are more bluegrass oriented in Hellertown and Stroudsburg and there is a Celtic jam on certain Wednesdays at Hammerhead in Northampton, PA. Some of these I located by Googling. Others I found by joining Meetup.com. Good luck with getting linked up. Maybe I'll see you in one of these jams!

Hi Making Sawdust,
There's one in Stroudsburg, PA, that is a real BG jam.
Pocono BG & Folk Society
Elks Lodge, 260 Washington St., East Stroudsburg, PA 18301
570- 421-9140
Neil 570.424.2937 or John 570.992.2259, jcuuu@ptd.net

Shindigs: 1st Sundays Oct. thru May, Doors open 11 am

The above is one that I haven't attended yet but have heard that everyone must take a "break" in turn. That gives you a chance to do your individual thing. In old time music everyone plays together through the whole song. You don't have to sign up for the P'burg old time jam; just show up. The Pocono BG jam, which meets this Sunday, may cost some money. I'm going to stay home and play with my jam recordings until the sun comes out. Have fun!

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…"

ETHAN DEUTSCH left a comment for timothy allred
"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
