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!

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…"
