Are we going to have a reprise of the ToJo Palo Duro Canyon jam anytime soon?

Cool pics Tojo. Welcome aboard. Question, I'm learning OT banjo and I cant seem to get decent volume, should I keep my picking finger stiff to get more volume, or loose like my wrist? Help!

Thanks Tommy, Thats what I thought. I have been working on trying to get clean bum diddy's and drop thumbing but when I tried to play some tunes with the guys up to speed all clarity went to hell and volume became nonexistent. I knew I can work on the clarity (repetition breeds confidence, confidence breeds clarity) but the volume thing has been stumping me.

I have heard about the backwards fingerpick thing for clawhammer. I am going to have to try it. Right now my fingernail is at optimum length and I know that conversely means its going to break at any moment. It would be so much better if I didnt have to deal with all that.

Hey Tommy,
Good to hear from you. I guess you will have to call me along with Dr. Mikey at 2 a.m. . I will be waiting!!
I really wish I could come down though, but I can't find anyone to see to the animals. I just have too darn many.

Talk to you soon.

Best Wishes,

Hazel.

Hi Tommy, Thanks for the freindship. I had a great at Kaufman Kamp this year. Looking forward to seeing you next year. By the way, My daughter will be starting at UGA in the fall. Perhaps when I'm in town we can pick a little.
Take care,
Terry

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…"
