Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I live just south of Denver. I have two beautiful daughters and one beeeeyootiful wife. I love the guitar and wish I could play more. I also have a mandolin. One of these days I'm going to record myself an album of gospel tunes, and I'll be playing the guitar and the mandolin and singing as best I can.

PJ,

I can relate to your post. As for how much you practice and how you feel about your playingl. I wish my goals were as high as yours. I'd be very happy if I could memorize 6 new tunes. I can hardly remember yesterday and rely on printed music too much. I too hope to attend at least 1 jam a month this next year.

Those are great goals. My goal for this year is also to learn some flatpicking standards... I have also spent the last few months memorizing songs... I am working toward 60 songs and am about 2/3 there. We have an outside promenade in Santa Monica Calif. where musicians and artists are permitted to perform. To do that, I need to have a fairly good repertoire under my belt. I've tried to find another guitarist locally to jam and perform with, but, can you believe it? they're so scarce in these parts! I stealing from your goal list and adding a "jam" session to my monthly goals. Hope you don't mind!

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…"
