He's ALIVE! Run Forest, Run!

Howdy folks!



Sorry to have been MIA for this webring thing... (song there?) but I have been chasing my tail and seemingly starting to get a handle on it.

Wanted to tell y'all that my website is back up, after someone hacked it and I had to rebuild from scratch! I am still in construction mode, so you might want to bring your hard hat. Ha!

www.jimhurst.com is the place, c'mon over.

Be back more often, I hope. Be well, keep…

The Legendary Earl Scruggs.

Now, surely everyone knows exactly who Earl Scruggs is, and of course, his son Randy is a great musician as well.  Where would we be without Earl Scruggs?  We'd have a lot less great music to play and listen to, that's where we'd be.

 

There's some great music here, Clarence White playing a telecaster with The Byrds and Earl and Randy Scruggs, some Flatt and Scruggs videos, and a great video with Steve Martin, Earl Scruggs, and some other very notable musicians that everyone…

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…"
