"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,   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…"

"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

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…"
