Healin Time

After a terrible beginning, things are looking up for 2010.

First Steps on a Hopefully Long Journey.

I must be nuts! Just ordered my first flatpicking guitar tutor, "First Lessons Flatpicking Guitar", by Joe Carr. Not too much of a risk at $14.95 though it will probably cost about $40 to send it to Scotland! At least it has a book, CD, and DVD. Watch out you flatpickin' maestros - I'm on your tail!
Also signed up for a years subscription to the FGM magazine, with CD. Hopefully I'll larn something there too?

Minimizing

Howdy Folks



I think it's been last year since I wrote anything. Okay I know

that's a bad joke. You might even say it's old as the hills. I

have a friend that lives in the desert. He's always trying to

convince me to go out and visit. That I'd love it and I think

he's right. I'd love to go and visit him; although,

I must admit to a little fear.

What's the fear about? Not coming back of course I've been

in the mood to move lately.

Big… Continue

A working man's review of a Whipple Creek Mahogany Dreadnaught

For the last six months I've been waiting for this guitar & wondering just what it would be like. The EIR/Adi dread I heard Robert Bowlin play at Peaceful Bend in May was so I great, I wondered if it was the exception. Well after almost 5 days of playing my Mahogany Dreadnaught, I'm ready to share my thoughts on this new instrument.

This guitar is without doubt the finest sounding new instrument I've ever played. It's loud. The sound is balanced string to string, and note for note all… Continue

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…"
