Hi Roger, nice to know someone else here in the UK reads Flatpicking Guitar! How's the Bluegrass scene up there in Harrogate? Nothing happening down here in Worcester, but there are regular pickin' nights every month in neighbouring Birmingham and Hereford. Haven't been to them yet, but planning to visit both in the near future. I'm new to soloing, but keen and working on it. I play a Avalon L32, made by the luthiers that used to build Lowdens. Anyways, thanks for the invite!
John.

Hi Roger,

Good to hear from you. It's funny that we're about 15 miles apart and are communicating through this site!

So...what models are your three Martins?

Cheers,

Chris

Thanks for the invite. Good to know there are other people in the UK getting the magazine. Only just started playing so I've a long way to go but I'm sure I'll pick up some tips from you guys.

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 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…"
