Formerly, I was a banjo picker. When I switched to the Dobro Squareneck long time ago. It's my favorite instrument. But it's easy to sing playing the guitar. And if you play in a jam... you are invited to chorus ! So I learned to flatpick... And it's also a great pleasure for me. Flatpicking is better to rise my reso level and picking the reso give me some new ideas to flatpick.
I play as a sideman with numerous bands and I love to Jam...

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
"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…"
