"Hi, Bill. I guess I've been busy. Sorry. I won't be so busy that I'll miss this year's Americana though. Maybe I'll get my tickets ordered today. Thanks for the ping."

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I started trying to play bluegrass music about forty-five years back and I'm still at it. I also mess around with some blues and thumbpicking things. I'm now unemployed (retired) and playing a lot more music.
Do you have a website?

Sharp eye for detail! If I'd been a little more adept at photoshop, I'd have made everything but the tortex pick be grey-tone so it would have been more obvious why I took the photo in the first place.

The pick works perfectly to keep that slide in place.

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 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…"
