"Makes perfect sense to me JS. On a parallel note i know a lot of woodworkers who love to find and restore vintage machinery. Eventually that is all they do and woodworking itself becomes a secondary pursuit. You are taking a good focused route. Like…"

"Hey Jon, since you'll be in Redding you have to go south to San Fran area and visit and play at Gryphon Stringed Instruments 211 Lambert Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94306. That's Frank Ford's shop...you won't want to leave."

Hey Mike thanks for the welcome.  I have just ordered a flatpicking essentials volume 1 by Tim May and hoping this will help my progress as I am brand new to flatpicking but am very anxious to learn.  Have printed of lots of scales so far and watching a lot of youtube to get tips.  Just trying to speed up my finger work for now.

 

Take care I'm sure your liking the weather alot better down in sunny California its been a depressing long.... winter up here this year, but spring is coming up you can feel it in the air only -5 today.

Thanks again,

Craig

Hi Mike. Thanks for the welcome - looks like you're the official doorman :-) I'm looking forward to getting involved in the network. I've just been working on a (slow) version of East Tennessee Blue, might post it up once I find my way around this place!

Kind regards,

Hey Mike, Thanks!

What, am I supposed to now wear a red ribbon along with my pa-JAM-a's? ;-)

thanks mike

a Collings is similar quality to my Fylde - tho the Collings are more expensive - but hey, I don't need an excuse to look at expensive guitars!!!!  Yes I did omit to say, where, its Redding - CA.   The trick for me will be finding a guitar that sounds good flatpicking/blugrass and finger picked folk.

Taxing 'em ain't enough. In acoustic only environments, they should be outlawed or required to wear mutes.

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…"
