Tony replied to Jim Samuel's discussion Starting Over - With Essentials in the group Flatpicking Essentials
"Wow, this sounds very familiar to me. My problem, I think, is I have too many toys and not enough time to play with all of them. I have had several guitars for years, in addition to ukuleles and mandolins, so I lose focus going from one toy to…"

"Hi Bob, I have an older version of BIAB and also use it to practice with. I don't know much about it yet, but all I do is plug in the chords and play my mandolin along with it. It feels better than playing to a metronome beat to me. I have…"

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

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…"
