Mark Thatcher commented on Bryan Floyd's group Celtic Flatpicking
"I am totally with Adam on the capo issue. Besides, most Irish pickers are tuned DADGAD or Dropped D tuning. I think its a very American thing to capo in the key of D."

"Nice John. I like that you used the Kesh in the equation. Definitely a great flatpicked Celtic tune!"

Mark Thatcher replied to Cathal Cusack's discussion no flatpicking but maybe you're interested in the group Celtic Flatpicking
"Cathal did you or Kathy ever carry the melody in the session or were you two keeping yourselves to accompaniment? I would feel hard pressed not to start fltpicking the tunes. BTW this video was the impetus for me spending about three hours quality…"

Shucks, I wudda brung my LSV, too.
At 8:36pm on May 8, 2008, Rick Crenshaw said…
I play the Proulx 99% of the time. I like it that much, but if you like rosewood this LSV is very nice. A very accomplished picker played it several hours last night and wanted to buy it right then... not lowballed either.

Hi Mark, Good to hear from you. Are you guys going to any festivals in New England this summer? I'd love to get together and pick some more, Joe Val was a blast.

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 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

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…"
