"I do "dropped capo" too sometimes, it works great for solo stuff. I really like your arrangement and the drone gives that right lift to the music!!!"

"Hi Kathy, 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. Ciao Marco"

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...

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 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…"
