I'd like to have a lesson with all the people you mentioned:) They are all great guitar players.
Regarding sharing what I've learned with John it's kind of difficult. He was mainly playing the tune and we were playing it…"
I completely understand what you mean. Last summer I spent a week with John Doyle and I had a really great time learning from him. He is a great teacher, but very advanced on the flatpicking side and talking about the ornamentation…"
I really like your arrangement. You should do a column for FGM. Please talk to Dan about that because I'm sure that people will be interested in some Irish Traditional flatpicking guitar.

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music.
Played mainly jazz and blues and recorded a cd : "Keeping The Blues Inside".
I teach guitar in schools and I give private lessons. After years of teaching I found out that I love so much to give back what I learned.
I play Irish Traditional music mainly in DADGAD tuning.
Hi Marco- not sure where each session is each night, but there are at lot of them- one is surely at The Green Briar in Brighton Center on Monday night; other bars that have them are The Burren in Somerville, The Brendan Behan and St. Games Gate in Jamaica Plain; O'Leary's in Brookline... let me know a week or so before you come into town and maybe we can meet for a few tunes...
Hi Marco, great to hear from you. There are many trad music sessions in Dublin all the time. I play every Friday night. I will give you more information closer to the date of your journey. I will be happy to meet you. Best Wishes Danny
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
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
"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…"
