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."

"Without a doubt, my right hand is what needs work. Although the left hand is equal in importance, the right hand is what gives the attack, volume, and tone. Most of my practices are concentrated on getting the right hand stroke to be uniform in all…"

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

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

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…"
