I'm still trying to learn some Bluegrass tunes. My son and I are working on Sailors Hornpipe at the moment from the Brad Davis Jam series. I'm enjoying my son's interest in guitar and I am teaching him some "tricks of the trade" to speed his development. I hope to attend at least one Bluegrass Festival this year and maybe by the end of the year I can afford a new Takamime. Continue

A few songs to share

Hi anyone, I have posted a version of Blackberry Blossom (arrangement is largely Rick Williams from bluegrassbooksonline.com - check him out, good stuff) which is about half of what I want to play in Wayne Henderson's contest. I'm smoothing out a version were I change to drop D for one more go around.



Also, there's a version of "Homestead on the Farm" that I was inspired to do for my mother. I made a CD for her on her 70th birthday as she deals with advancing… 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 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…"
