Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

How can we do something Collectively to keep Flat Picking Magazine in Business?

I got the letter that many of you probably got from Dan Miller stating that this will be his 20th and last year of producing this really quality product. I just started with flatpicking a year ago and quickly renewed yesterday but he needs TONS more subscriptions. There are literally over 4000 members here. Can we spread the word and if you could spare the cost of a subscription could you call right now and subscribe? 

Here is the number 1-573-823-5582

I wish I knew what else I could do to help but I know word of mouth goes a long way. 
Christmas is coming and giving a subscription to someone you know could help. Any other ideas?? 

Thanks so much. I know there are LOTS of worthy causes in this world and some are even life or death which I know this is not BUT music has been my life line when facing terrible crisis. I'm sure I'm not alone in this feeling. It's close to breathing for me...

Yes, Our families and their health are THE most important things for us but having music in our lives keeps us happy and helps us to be who I think God wants us to be. I'm not going to get religious or political because that's not what this blog is about. It's about not wanting something to end that simply does not have to if enough people subscribe and show Dan that his magazine is making a difference in people's musical lives.

I'm not paid or endorsed to do any of this I just called and told him that if I could help spread the word I would. He was very gracious and thanked me. But I realized I can't do this alone!!

Thank you

Maria

I spoke with Dan and he wants to make sure everyone knows he will continue to maintain the website is wonderful news. Just NOT the magazine. I think that's a shame so I hope you all can help me spread the word and many of you will subscribe or renew!!

thanks

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…"
