A few more songs to share

Hi friends, I've been gone a long time from the network, but looks like I'll be able to play more nowadays. I had the most fabulous week of instruction in my life when I took Russ Barenberg's Advanced Guitar class at Augusta back in August. He got me unstuck - now I know how to impove. Russ does skype lessons now - I'd encourage you to take advantage.This past year I started pickin' with a new friend, Eugene Ellis from Mebane NC. Fabulous player. I've posted a few very rough recordings (Red…See More

Came to flatpicking late (mid 30's). Inspired by my first Doc concert. Play in a local bluegrass band and enter Wayne Henderson's festival most every year. I've learned a lot from the wonderful Mr Steve Kilby.

A few songs to share

Hi anyone, I have posted a version of Blackberry Blossom (arrangement is largely Rick Williams from bluegrassbooksonline.com - check him out, good stuff) which is about half of what I want to play in Wayne Henderson's contest. I'm smoothing out a version were I change to drop D for one more go around.



Also, there's a version of "Homestead on the Farm" that I was inspired to do for my mother. I made a CD for her on her 70th birthday as she deals with advancing… Continue

Hi Rick, Nice to hear from you. I got to see Dan last year in Denver with another old Kokomo Bro, Tim Moody. I still record and perform with Vince Gill and off and on with the Irish group the Chieftains and have been produced Mike Ckeveland last three cd's. Take care, Jeff

hi LJ, you were the only guy to mention then euphonon strings. i have been using them for years and you certainly can't beat the price. since I'm ready to order another 2 doz. sets would you please tell me what gauges you choose for your true mediums. i've got two of Walter's guitars which i am very fond of but last april i bought a traditional Brazilian dread from Huss & Dalton and have simply never played such an incredibly loud, clean and well defined sounding guitar and i have always made it a point to plan any and all guitars i've been able to get my paws on. i've also found i love the sound and feel i get from the red bear picks. better than my real tortis shell.

Yea, Augusta is a really amazing festival, it was always an eye opener for me. i've never wrote any songs but i've been messing around with a few ideas recently so i'm pretty excited about that. and i've been looking over his book too, it's definitely pretty challenging but i think it's probably the easiest way to learn the fretboard that i've found. glad i found a couple of people on here, but i hope to pick with you again soon. i'll definitely be at augusta this year.

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

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…"
