Hey Phil from Naperville, Sam from down in Urbana here! How long've you played? I know we're a couple hours away but I'm always looking for other pickers and I do come up near that area occasionally. Interested in doing a little picking sometime? Let me know. I don't get on the forum a whole lot but I check my email regularly. spayne1@stu.parkland.edu. Also, I don't know if you're familiar with Robert Bowlin (he's a monster guitar player), but he's doing a flatpicking workshop down here on my the 9th. He and Wil Maring will also be doing a concert the same evening.

Thanks for the ad Phil. Hope we meet down the road sometime. I'm a member of the NIBA and love to pick and sing bluegrass. Looking someday to start a bluegrass band for fun profit and recording a project.

Yeah I met Tom and went to Steve K workshop in Frankfort last year. Work conflict this year. Maybe we can car pool to Frankfort one time, I've known about it but it is a little bit of a distance on a weekday.....perhaps worth it. I'm the majority ower of a professional CPA firm and really a fanatic bluegrass player singer. I've got all CDs bluehighway has plus all the tab and teaching tapes that Tim Stafford has done. Do you think Frankfort may have a group of musicians ready to get a little serious? I have a basement recoding studio so we could produce projects or just record jamming sessions.

Hey Phil
Glad you got the OM (back?)
Sounds like you are guitar rich at the moment.
Keep working on ways to improve that Choo Choo Charlie's. It's so close to being a landmark.
See you soon I hope.
stay well my friend.

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…"
