"My schedule has changed three times since the last time I played with you guys. I'm working from 2 p.m. 'til 10 p.m. now, but who knows it may change again. If it does I'll give you a call. I've been pickin' the hell out of…"
I remember that festival ... one of the best during its day. I'm happy that you've been spending so much time flatpicking ... it's great music with great players and wonderful people.
Hey Ed. I saw your post with Jonathan Trawick. I met him at Grove last month. I live in Owasso, OK. I get over to Rogers, AR every few weeks on business. I don't usually stay over, but I could sure stay a few extra hours for a chance to pick with someone other than my CD player! Let me know what you think... Gary
That sounds great. Ironically, I was just in Rogers on Friday - probably won't be there again for a few weeks. Let me check out my schedule and maybe we could work out something for Siloam Springs without a trip to Rogers. I got an itch that really needs to be scratched. BTW, would it be better for you on a weekday or a weekend for Siloam Springs? Later, Gary
wowzers, i just jammed with your daughter the other night! i've known bayerd and brian and bernice for a while and met shannon at one of their gigs, but hadn't gotten to jam. i've heard a lot about you. i DEFINITELY want to get together and jam. that'd be great! lemme know next time you're in town. maybe i can make it down the hill sometime as well.
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 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
"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…"
