Father's Day weekend in CA...

Just heading back home from a weekend in CA. Father's Day Fest in Grass Valley (missed Dan Miller -he was in VA), and Huck Finn Jubilee in Victorville. Disappointed that the Roy Rogers Museum has been moved from Victorville to Branson, MO. Happy to have seen Paige Anderson (hope you're feeling better Paige), heard Molly Tuttle and the Tuttle band, and visited with my buddy Mike Wilhoyte, always a good time. Also good to hear the Grascals and nice to hear Sawmill Road and Blue and… Continue

Schizo guitarist trying to focus

I love the guitar and have been playing now for 30 years (off and on), but my biggest struggle has always been trying to focus on a style for any length of time. I love fingerstyle the most, but I also love acoustic flatpicking, jazz/swing, rockabilly, blues, heavy metal, etc. Given the limited time to practice, with 14 hour work days and commute, I guess I feel like I'm just scratching the surface with each style, although I try to focus practice time as much as possible. Thankfully, there is… Continue

Using a Metronome

Hello to all.

How do you use a Metronome. I understand this is a very good tool for timing, I have 2 Metronomes, I turn them on and they go tick tock tick tock etc. I understand their importance. All kidding aside. What would be a good set-up for practice.

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…"
