LOOKING FOR GENE SLOAN. LEAD GUITAR , PLAYED WITH DON GIBSON IN THE 60`S

RUMORS WAS THAT GENE HAD BEEN KILLED IN A TRUCK WRECK IN THE LATE SIXTIES. HE COULD MAKE A GUITAR SOUND LIKE THE PETAL STEEL. I BELIEVED THE RUMOR UNTIL MY BROTHER DISCOVERED SOME BLOGS ON THE INTERNET THAT INDICATED THAT GENE IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL.
I SURE WOULD LOVE TO CONTACT HIM. HE WAS A WIZARD PLAYER.....ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE DEEPLY APPRECIATED..

What makes a great guitar for flatpickers?

http://hubpages.com/hub/High-End-Acoustic-Guitars-For-Flatpickers



I submitted the blog, or "hub" above over at hubpages.com, where I write about every and anything. Music, however, is one of my favorite topics. Guitars and guitar music specifically-and to further narrow it down, fine acoustic flat tops, for flatpicking. I sort of hit the basics-but there's so much more to say. I'll do a follow up sooner or… Continue

Finding key chords

This must be common knowledge, but I've not seen it posted so I thought I'd chime in. For those who are working their way up the neck, it is useful to note that once the fifth string is memorized, you can figure out any key I IV V series. For examaple, the 5th string is the root A, the 4th is D and the 6th is E, hence A D E is the I IV V family. At the third fret, the root is C, the 4th string 3rd fret is F and the 6th string 3rd fret is G, and so the key of C contains the C, F, and G chords.… 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…"
