Monty Smith replied to Tommy Raper, Jr.'s discussion Right shoulder pain

Monty Smith replied to Andrew's discussion Pickers in Central New Jersey?

Monty Smith replied to Thomas Williamson's discussion Opinions needed please on second guitar choice...
"I'm not as much of a collector as many of the folks here on the forum, having only owned 6 or 8 guitars over 30 years of playing, so other opinions may differ. But FWIW, I'd go for something more distinctly different instead of something…"

Monty Smith replied to Roger Ferguson's discussion What's the weakest "link" in your flatpick technique
"I'm not sure I could say in all certainty that I have more trouble with one hand or the other, but in practice I definitely do focus more on right hand technique. As others have already pointed out, that's where you control the bulk of…"

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

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
