What's important in life

When I was a young man, I loved the guitar, self taught, 18, would play until my hands bled, then put bandages on my fingertips and play some more



This should have told me something, but it didn't.



I always played somewhat after that, but had to make room for career, family, church, money, so my music side took a back seat. My Martin was always there, it should have told me something then, but it didn't.



I'm now 56, smitten with a passion for bluegrass, guitar,… Continue

Hi Walter,

Sorry I am so late in responding but work takes me around the globe and I honestly have not sat down in front of a computer (for fun that is) since early September. Anyway, good to have another friend.
Best regards,
Jeff Morrison

Thanks Walter. I've been really enjoying a couple of bluegrass jams in Frankfort. 45 mins from home but worth the drive. Also see you're a Blue Highway fan. I just got turned on to them a few weeks back and really love Lonesome Pine (the whole cd and the song). Check out DownHomeGuitars.com for the jam info as well as for some incredible guitars. Tom Smith, the owner, is a fellow picker and rather than just satisfying his GAS attacks with buying a guitar now and then, Tom decided to open a guitar store instead. He took over hosting the Steve Kaufman workshop from me a few years ago. Great guy and a tremendous store.

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…"
