I love my new Tak!

I recently bought a TAN16C in Springfield Missouri. I got a great deal on the guitar and it came with a hardshell case. So far nothing but sweetness out of it I can't wait or it to "open up". Nothing more inspiring then to play such a sweet sounding instrument. The cool tube with built in tuner is fantastic as well, I know there are Taylors and Breedloves Collings and Martins that sound fantastic but for the money its hard to beat a Takamine. The split bridge gives this guitar perfect… Continue

My New Red Bear



Got my new Red Bear in yesterday's mail.



It's got a wonderful feel and though I don't feel the "grips", it's better having them where they are than up as high as they used to be. The roundness of this "F" shape seems to make a smoother sound than the "C" I've been playing with lately. The "C" may be slightly louder, being pointier as it is, but the new "F" seems to bring out fewer extraneous noises.



I like a completely… 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…"
