"Hello folks, got room for one more? I started working in this book a few months ago but got distracted, this group would be a good prompt to pick it up again and see it to the finish line."

Flatpicking Essentials: Freshman Class 2010

This group is for those that have recently started working with Dan Miller's Flatpicking Essentials Series, and want to share their thoughts and support each others development. General idea is, as a group, to actively work through F.E. together.

"Barbara, My Posch D18, Leo's 18th instrument, landed on my door January 18, 2008. I try and fine time to play it every day. It' an amazingly powerful guitar, If you make it to Winfield stop by Pikes Pick and say hello"

Hey Rich,
I received a Leo Posch 00042 style guitar this summer and have had all my expectations exceeded. He is an amazing builder. I played a Posch D18 @ Winfield(Mike Horans guitar). It was light as a feather and rang like a bell. How long have you had your Posch D18?

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."

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…"
