Mark Marispini replied to Roger Ferguson's discussion What's the weakest "link" in your flatpick technique
"Roger, That's about the best advice there is. I played/strummed/outofsync/goingnowhere for many moons. It wasn't until I met the metronome that it clicked (pun intended). With all seriousness, great advice! mark."

Thanks Mark - I really appreciate your kind comments! Yes I met Molly (and a lot of other folk!) at IBMA this year, she was an awesome little picker! We had a fantastic time and hope to come back to The States as soon as possible! Fantastic photographs by the way!
Warm Wishes Sophia

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…"

Tim Allred contact
