Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've started to flatpick around '73, I was 13 years old.
I've played in different bluegrass band in Paris France, the last one is Blue Railroad Train.
I love to jam, and real "café" and BBQs.
My english is not fluent, I apologize in advance.
Do you have a website?

Oh yes, Philippe, I remember you well. I have no time now but will write more soon to tell you what I've been up to, and I hope you will do the same. I went to your myspace page and heard some of your songs. Great flatpicking, and great music. Congratulations. I have a myspace page too. You can hear one or two cuts off my new CD. I will write more soon. Glad to hear from you.
Your friend, John

Tim. I don't go with the band, just with Pierre (who came previously with me at Winfield ; dobro) . For a loooonnnng big week of jam, starting the thursday before (land rush).
Our tent will probably be at the Comfortable Shoes Camp (Pecan Grove area).
I'm glad you'll be there and I'm sure I will find you at least around the Pickin' Parlor, if it is still exist

You're welcome. I've got three or four from the jam that night. Would you like me to e-mail them to you? At what address?

Bonsoir Philippe ! Alors, j'habite un petit village "les 3 Pierres" à 25 km du Havre (170 de Paris). C'est marrant d'être en contact via un site US, mais ce n'est pas n'importe lequel ! je suis déjà aller sur ton myspace. c'est super votre groupe avec Jean Marie Redon (Well Known).Moi je suis juste amateur et je joue moyennement de la guitare, mais j'adore le flatpicking et le fingerpicking. Je me suis mis recemment à la mandoline (Kentucky) et c'est le pied aussi. Je suis un ami de Jean Marie Peschuitta le guitariste de Turquoise que tu connais peut être. â bientôt. Yves.

Hi Philippe, looking forward to seeing you at Winfield this year. Hope all is well with you, Keith

Hi Philippe,
It has been a long time since I've seen you but I hear good things. I would be glad to get together anytime. Let's find a time and place. I would love to go to Winfield this year but I don't think I can. You'll be there?
Best, Mark Cosgrove

hey Philippe, I was in Paris in 2000 (w/Mary Gibbons, who was touring w/Laurie Lewis at the time). I wish I'd known to look you up then. I did visit (spontaneously) a guitar builder in Provence.... can't remember his name, perhaps you know? I lived in Chateauroux 1960-1962, so when I was in Paris I took a trip there. I hope to get back someday but with the exchange rate ... not looking good!

Of course more importantly Mary was the rhythm guitarist/lead singer in our band The All Girl Boys. She took my brazilian '55 D-28 on that tour. I finally took it back, it's a good'n. (A goldern goodern as Jim Hurst would say).

Anyway, yes, when I told the concierge in our Paris hotel I was headed to Chateauroux I got quite the look--you'd think I was going to Mars or something. It was a good 24 hours for me, many memories to revisit. If we ever do meet--and the US west coast is a great place to visit--be sure to look me up, and remind me to tell you my Chateauroux car rental story....

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…"
