Flatpicking Essentials, Volume 1: Rhythm, Bass Runs & Fill Licks

You FGM subscribers may remember that back in the "Pioneers" issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine I laid out a step-by-step flatpicking learning method that followed the chronological development of the style. This method started with a solid foundation in the rhythm guitar styles of flatpicking's early pioneers--a style that includes a liberal use of bass runs and rhythm fill licks, combined with rhythmic strums.



I have just released Volume 1 of the Eight Volume Essentials… Continue

Orrin Star: in Texas and throughout the Southeast soon; looking for things to do in Dallas, N.C., and Jacksonville.

Hi All:



I've got two big tours coming up - to Texas in January, and then driving to Florida and back from my

home base here in Maryland the month after that - and I'm looking for a few more places to perform

and teach during my travels. (Itinerary for both trips as they now stand is below.)



If any of you might be interested in hosting a workshop or house concert or such let me know.

Greg Morton -- Solo Guitar

Greg Morton has been a star on the bluegrass and jazz guitar scenes since the 70s. He and his twin brother, Randal, are hands down my favorite players, both for the immense talents they've so fully developed, and for their kind and generous natures.



Back in September 2004 Greg recorded a CD in three evenings sitting at his kitchen table. Solo Guitar is as fine a display of musicality by a guitarist as you're likely to find. Lots of standards and most recorded with just a rhythm… Continue

Lanham Guitar #1

After many years of restoring guitars with famous names and building guitars under the NGC name I have decided to present my own 'Master Series' using the Lanham name.

I am thinking in terms of using my absolute best materials and some of the things I've learned along the way to make a few really great guitars.Thanks to the encouragement of one of my clients I have finished Lanham #1 and it is a Brazilian rosewood/ Eastern Red D size. I have posted pics on my new website ] still under… Continue

Unknown Legends, new CD



Ciao Everyone!

I celebrate my 10-year musical journey with a brand new album Unknown Legends.



Raised in a Catholic family, as a kid I was taught that life is a gift - God's greatest gift. I have always admired those who work quietly to make the world a better place: people who dedicate their time, sometimes their entire lives, building bridges of love. These songs celebrate these unknown legends. It is my secret desire to… Continue

My Shenk Guitar



First time I saw it was through the window of Jim’s shop. I was up in Goshen for one of the first of what has now become 5 years of old-timey jams held in the farmer’s market of Goshen.



The guitar hung on a rack between several others – most of those others being repairs that Jim was working on. It didn’t have a pickguard back then, and I mistakenly assumed that it was a Larrivee (Larrivee’s had clear pickguards back… Continue

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…"
