Howdy strangers...

Howdy all. Here I am in the 2nd day of the last 3 days' worth of gigs with the Claire Lynch Band, and I thought I'd take a moment and say hello to y'all. It's been quite a while....


Yep, you have probably heard that I am leaving the CLB and this is my last weekend tour with them. Joining her in my place is Matt Wingate, and I wish him well, as I do Jason Thomas and Mark Schatz. Claire has had many players in her bands over the years, and I have been working for…

A Bus Ride

A giant of an individual once shared a seat on the bus with me. We

sat

in silence and watched the road pass by. I had the aisle seat. I have

forgotten where I was going now yet I distinctly remember the smell of

the bus, the bag lady sitting next to us, and the colors of the city I

was in.



The person who was sitting next to me had brown eyes and

hair. They seemed to be of working class origins I noticed the roughness

of the hand that shook mine. It… Continue

Winter & Spring

Listen!

I think you will hear me if you push the 'listen' part.



Lately I've found myself almost obsessed with Honey Bee's. I mean I wrote a song called The Honey Bee Way,I hear other songs about them, see them in stores, and hear other folks talking

about them. Bee's!!! I love them. I think what's really happening is that I'm getting over-anxious for Winter to finally finish and Spring to get going.

I live in Minnesota Winter is really Winter here it was a… 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

"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…"
