My first blog...

Hello, really don't know where to begin...

making enough noise to make the animals run and hide...LOL

{all spoken very quietly}



Frank: Well, if you are just joining us we are stage-side at the US Open Guitar Tourney. The leaderboard shows Grier up by a tremolo but in the last four songs, Sutton has been closing the gap. Sutton has taken the stage.



Roger: It looks as though Sutton has chosen his Bourgeios strung with, of all… Continue

The Dave Nachmanoff Flatpicking Dance Mix

Dave Nachmanoff (who will be featured in the November/December issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine) has just released an instrumental dance single (no not 'Joe The Georgian') on iTunes! It's a cover of a very well known song but we'll let you discover for yourself which one. The producer (Jeff McCullough) did a fantastic job, and for less than a buck you can download it, carry it around in your iPod, and play it at your next

party. Let us know what you think. It has plenty of hot… Continue

Fred, meet Ginger...



It’s that wire that no one sees but draws us to the magician’s hand.



It’s the true north that mysteriously keeps our needle pointing one way.



One day we hear the jangle, the strum of an E chord, the tip-of-a-hat in a G run, or the one-man-band of a fingerstyle song and we’re never the same. We wander through life with a different song in our mind. We notice everything guitar—of course in sound on the radio and in… Continue

Freja met the man - Tony Rice

Here is an update on my daughter at ETSU. She went with friends from school down to IBMA in Nashville. She gets to do all the fun things I would have wanted to do. Way back since Freja was small, we have been listening to Tony Rice in the car. My two other daughters usually complain, but once in a while I and Freja can listen to what we want to. I have never had the chance to see Tony Rice, but always whished that I may have the chance some day. I told Freja before she left for IBMA that she… 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…"
