Springfield, Missouri I joined Flatpick-L in 1995, and got on board the Plectrology team in 1998, helping with the distribution of disc 4 for Plec III. Our granddaughter, Ashley Grace Moore, wearing her Flatpick-L cap, is providing moral support. I enjoy acoustic guitars, and I am glad to be able to contribute to the flatpicking community by helping with Plectrology. Flatpickers are by and large always willing to help others and when we are gathered together, the music is great, and the fellowship is hard to beat. Plectrology is a good project, and I encourage each of you to submit a tune or two. Now that I am retired, I am beginning to work on something for Plectrology VIII, although as many of you know, I cannot carry a tune in a basket.

Cheers, Harry

A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square (E. Maschwitz / M. Sherwin; 3:21) Angels (C. Hall; 3:38)
Guitar: Martin 000-28. Notes: This year, I resort to digging up some old recordings that I did with a wonderful singer, Amy Fotheringham. We played together for about a year, and had one "official" show. The tracks are taken from the live recording of the gig at Loaf and Ladle in Exeter, New Hampshire, January 1994. A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square - This is a jazz standard, which happened to be the first tune we practiced together. Angels - Written by Chuck Hall, this is one of our favorite tunes. I played my Martin 000-28, fingerpicked (sorry), but I did use a flatpick during the gig.

Alabama Jubilee (trad.; 1:45)
Guitars: 1939 Martin D-18. 1963 Martin D-21 Recording: AKG C2000s microphone, Korg D16 digital recorder, Sony D-8 Dat Notes: No particular reason why I decided to record this tune other than I had been playing it quite a bit and been having fun with it.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

4-8 4-9
Ash Hollow (P. Riedesel; 1:57) Travelin Free (P. Riedesel; 3:01)
Guitars: My principal guitar is a 2000Martin D-42. My 97 Santa Cruz H makes a cameo appearance in the second song. Notes: Both numbers are original, and I do all the picking, singing, and tooting. Ash Hollow was a resting place along the Oregon Trail in western Nebraska, near where my parents grew up. The ruts may still be seen on what they called Windlass Hill. Travelin Free was one of those songs I got up in the middle of the night to write down. I tried not to miss any ramblin / gamblin /travelin man clichs before putting my own twist on it.

Southern Germany
4-10 Whistling Rufus (F. A. Mills; 4:06) Double Stop Music
Guitars: Martin LSV; Santa Cruz Custom D. Recording: Sony MZ-N707 MD Recorder, clip on microphone. Notes: Both Guitars are in Standard Tuning.1st solo is Cliff, then Mark, then both of us together. We played two of my Guitars. Mark is playing the Martin LSV, an older one with an Adirondak top. I am playing a Santa Cruz "Custom D". There were only maybe 10 or 12 of these made for a Guitar Shop here in Germany. The bracing and the sound hole have been modified and we both think it sounds MUCH better than a standard D. Now a little bit about how this happened. Mark and Liz have been staying at my place every time they've been over here for the past few years. They had been here about a week and were getting ready to leave. Liz was finishing packing and Mark and I were finishing our coffee. Then, out of the blue, Mark says, "Hey, let's record something for Plec!" Talk about being caught on the wrong foot! I wasn't even really awake yet! Two minutes later Mark had his Sony MZ-N707 MD Recorder on the table with a very small kind of a clip on Microphone like you see in TV shows. Then we just started playing! Mark said the first take was probably too long (over 6 min.) so we did it again and cut it down to about 4 min. Mark is really a joy to play anything with! He's got so many ideas and just seems to come up with something different every time! I was just glad to even get through the thing once! Actually, this is the first time I've ever really done this before and it was SO much fun that I went out and got a MD Recorder myself (the same one) and will definitely be doing some more of this in the future! I've got a couple other tunes I would really like to do with Mark the next time they're here. Mark has been a great source of inspiration and motivation and I will always be grateful for that! Thanks Mark!!!

Integritys Hosanna Music

4-16 Looking into Holiness (arr. by E.
Smith; 3:02) Guitars: 98 Whitaker 14-string Dreadnought Custom 2002 McCollum 20-String Harp Guitar
Recording: We took the plunge and recorded at SoundTrax Studio in Wendell, Idaho. That was a fun experience! Ed played a custom 1998 Whitaker 14-string Dreadnought on the tune Days of Elijah. Ed played a custom 2002 McCollum 20-String Harp Guitar on the tune Looking into Holiness. Ike played the harmonica on both tunes. The 14-string Dreadnought is tuned bBeEaAdDgGbbee, and the Harp guitar is tuned the same, with the Bass strings tuned GAADEF (low to high) on the bass strings. X-pickin' 14-stringer - I love that Smoky Mountain Music!

4-17 Uncle Hermans Hornpipe (trad.) / Ten Miles to Deep Gap (J. Lawrence) (3:51)
Musicians: Steve Snyder - lead; Skip Staples - rhythm Guitars: Gallagher Custom Doc Watson (Skip) Martin HD28 (Steve)

Recording: We recorded this at our good buddy Scott Fransons home/studio on Pro Tools. Notes: Skip and I wanted to record some tunes done by our heroes. So, we chose Uncle Hermans Hornpipe (traditional), because of the great version by Dan Crary and Norman Blake on Jammed if I Do and Ten Miles to Deep Gap (Jack Lawrence), because Jack taught me this tune a few years ago. Its also the tune that Jack was asked once after playing it, Is that a real song, or did you just make it up? Skip kicks off Uncle Hermans Hornpipe then leaves the rest of the lead for me to take to the end of Ten Mile to Deep Gap. After 3 years of Skip asking me if I got my Plectrology submission in, I can finally say yes. He introduced me to my first experience in a studio and I loved it. Thanks Skip!


Winlock, Washington

4-18 America the Beautiful (K. Bates / W. Ward; 1:46) 4-19 Pickin' the Guitar (N. Lucas; 3:04)
Guitar: 73 Martin D-35 Recording Information: I recorded these 2 tunes using Cool Edit Pro really not knowing at all what I was doing! Chief Noda helped me get them in proper format. Notes: All tunes were played solo on my 1973 D-35 which has been worked on by our own Bryan Kimsey as well as local luthier Troy Greene.
America the Beautiful I learned out of FPM from Harold Streeter's column. Pickin' the Guitar I learned from Beppe Gambetta's arrangement at SKFC 2001. I still have rough edges around the tunes but Ill get them ironed out in time.


Santa Cruz, CA
4-20 TV Tone (M. Tatar; 2:36))
Guitar: Martin D-18 or Santa Cruz D Recording: The recording was made with a Sound Professionals stereo omni microphone mounted in an otter box and run into a Sharp MD-SR60 mini-disk recorder. Unfortunately, the mic works too well and picks up everything, including a TV that was probably 30 feet away in another room. Recording equipment belongs to fellow Pickle, Pat Chin. Notes: Mike is the fiddle player for Ron Spears and Within Tradition, but is also a multi-instrumentalist who plays mandolin and guitar. He made this recording in the living room of his parents' house in Poway, CA after a jam session. Mike was either playing his father's Martin D-18 or Pat Chin's Santa Cruz D.
