Profile Information

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Dan Huckabee is the 1976 National Dobro Champion and the President of Musician's Workshop CD and DVD Music Instruction Company. Dan has recorded 5 solo albums and toured with several professional Bluegrass Bands, but has spent more time creating music instruction material than performing. In 1973 Musician's Workshop started producing cassette music lessons for two primary reasons. The first was that it was difficult to learn by reading sheet music, and the second because the sheet music available didn't correspond exactly to the performances on recordings that aspiring musicians were interested in.

The first Musician's Workshop product was a collection of Josh Graves most popular dobro solos, that were taught exactly note-for-note as Josh had played them on the original recordings. This product met with great appreciation because such information simply had never before been available. From there the company started teaching other instruments and concepts, with special purposes and teaching systems being the primary focus. Now over 35 years have passed and Musician's Workshop offers over 2,000 music instruction products with Bluegrass Guitar being one of the main specialties.

Dan's latest effort is a Bluegrass Guitar DVD lesson called "Perfecting Bluegrass Guitar Solos". In this video Dan teaches how to accomplish the most speed, accuracy, and tone, in the least amount of time. Dan has also recently released. "Understanding the Formula of Music", designed to give a firm knowledge of the mechanics of music to help you learn to teach yourself to play an instrument.

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

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…"
