Hey Kathy,

Very nice stuff. What is your source/inspiration for this material. I like this forum because it is introducing me to new territory......

Thanks Joe! These three as a set, I got it from Paddy Keenan (Na Keen Affair). These tunes get into my head over time and at some point I feel compelled to sit down and work on them. I actually didn't remember why I wanted to hear Hunter's House (titled Reevey's on the album, fyi the name is Reavy) afterward. In fact it was hard to find; if you research Reevey's you don't get much, if you research Reavy's you get many many tunes.... someone finally told me the name of it!) but when I realized it was a Keenan set then it made sense.

Ok, that's a long answer. The short (and real) answer is, listening to lots of music. Lately (obviously) lots of Irish music.

Thanks Kathy, that is great work. I really enjoy your playing. I can't wait 'til I retire too, so I can play more. I would like to hear your take on 'Foxhunters Reel'....Cheers!

Thanks Dane. My band did that, I've only played rhythm on it. But I ought to know the melody! I'll check it out.

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."

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

"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…"
