"Jon, Glad you enjoyed the sessions at Melodee Music.  I enjoyed doing the session.  The preamp is the Headway EDB1. Scott"

"Hi Scott- I really enjoyed your sessions at Melodee Music. Your speed is amazing! I forgot to write down the name of the pre-amp you use. What was it again? Thanks!"

"David, I'm not sure where these posts go either.  As far as the video goes, I don't know about attaching it to these posts; however, you can send it to me directly at  theflatpickking@yahoo.com Alternately, you could use Dropbox…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"David,   How you sit, hold the guitar, size of your guitar, etc., makes a difference; however, there is no "one size fits all" prescription.  As I've stated previously, everyone's anatomy and its relationship to the…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"It is difficult to describe the technique with words.  The video does help.  I think the main thing is to have your arm and hand in a relaxed position on the guitar and strings.  If you do that the angle tends to happen naturally and…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"The angle is 45 - 50 degrees (what you describe as 20 degrees).  The conventional rest stroke is fine; however, it can hamper your speed.  Tony does use a similar approach, as do Roy Buchanan, Al DiMeola, etc.  They sometimes call it…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"If you look at the string as a vertical plane, the angle of the pick to that plane is 45 degrees or so.  With my technique, there is an instant where the pick contacts the string before slicing or pushing/pulling through the string.  This…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"Dave, Sounds like you are getting  closer.  I do move the hand up and down to keep the hand in position.  When the pick pushes through the string, there is a point when the pick is parallel to the plane of the string.  This means…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"Dave,   If you are getting a scratchy sound, I suspect that the picks may not be shaped correctly or your angle of attach may be off.  Picking slowly should not exaggerate the problem.  I usually have my students play slowly - I call…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"David,   I've had the same issue with the Tortex, which is why I don't use that material unless I re-work the pick shape.  You are correct that you push with the front edge of the pick and pull through with the back edge of the…"

Scott Fore commented on David Rathgeber's blog post Holding the pick
"David, I don't think you were using the wrong approach.  The thickness of the pick does make a big difference.  If you are using .88mm picks and they are the teardrop shape I use the back rounded corner and not the pointed end. …"

I have purchased your contest winning arrangements book, I must say they are a little tricky to master. Have a few down at a good speed now but need to get them up to tempo. Thanks for the help

Scott-I really enjoy your playing. I just ordered a book of your arrangements and am looking forward to it. I am a fingerstyle player, or at least was, before a brain injury deleted everything. So, I am trying to relearn the instrument. Flatpickers look like they have a lot of fun, so I figure, "why not"?!
All the best,
Jim

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…"

ETHAN DEUTSCH left a comment for timothy allred
"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
