Complete FGM On DVD - On The Way

I've been bothering Dan periodically for a few months now asking when the DVD with every issue of FGM would be ready. I already had them all in print form but they were taking up so much space that I was really looking forward to having everything on a single DVD.



When I got the email yesterday that it was finally ready, I ordered immediately. I now have my print collection up on ebay, in groups of two volumes. I've been watching prior sales and if all works out, it should be about a… Continue

Hey there,Jim!
I became guitar-holic...G.A.S....
Just take a look at my photos.Will try to update them.
I've just received a Blazer&Henkes 000-42.It's a guitar from another planet;no bluegrass guitar of course,but a very sweet and resonant guitar,crystal clear sounding one.

Jim, I think I remember chatting with you on the Larrivee(?) board a few years back. I hope it's not too cold in PA, my wife has relatives up there. Marty

Hey Jim,

I saw your post on wanting to learn scales. I have some info up on the Theory Group : http://flatpick.ning.com/group/theorybeyondthesound/forum/topic/show?id=2091238%3ATopic%3A41877

In additional there are lots of books and Internet references for scales. Take a look at my link and if you want, send me a line. In the meantime, I see if I can find a good reference for you when I get home.

Mike

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…"
