"Hi Scott. I've been around for a while as a musician, but have just recently got into bluegrass guitar, and your 'BG Essentials' book has been very helpful. Love your playing too."

Hi Rob,
living in L.A., can sometimes be equivalent to riding on a runaway train-- with no safe place to jump! Well, the train has slowed down some, and here I am back on site listening and trying to learn more celtic music. I'm off today to try and find some useful books on the subject. My aunts and uncles used to sit around with mandolins and violins and play all the scottish reels while my heavy-set granny would lift her skirt and jig away-- so.. I learned to play the reels on the guitar... but never gave much attention to the real beautiful, lyrical celtic tunes. I am excited to put the time into learning them. Thanks for your inspirational site.
God bless ,
Nancy

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…"
