Learning new tunes...

I was wondering how folks go about learning new tunes and from what sources: tab, listening, or maybe from a teacher.PeterSee More

Peter Lucas replied to Paul's discussion Learning material
"Paul -- Look into Chris Jones' material on developing solos. Although he does have tabbed arrangements, he gets you moving in the direction of developing your own breaks. I've gotten a lot from his approach, and Dan Crary as well.…"

Hey Peter,
Welcome to Flatpicking Guitar Network. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I live in an area where there are no flatpickers and everyone scratches their heads and says what's that when I bring it up so thats what makes this site great. It gives me others to converse with and that helps keep me inspired. This site has helped me alot. Although I've played off and on for years I can only chord a little and am just learning to flatpick. I wish I had started young but better late than never. Welcome. Mike Pullen

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…"
