Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jan Auke OOST's discussion Learning fingerstyle...or trying to in the group The Student Advocate
" Here are some basic roll patterns for fingerstyle playing.Practice these with an  open G chord for a while, then move other chords, shifting the thumb to the root of the other chords (for instance shift it to the A string when playing…"

"I think you could possibly benefit from Jamie's lessons. I've never taken a lesson from her, but when I hit a plateau in my playing I found some of her free resources helpful in combination with other things. What I remember and still use…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jud Hair's discussion D-1 versus D-16 ... Is the D-16 worth the price difference? in the group Martin Owners
"probably so. I know I like my stratabond neck. This is the first guitar I've owned that hasn't needed adjustment every few months. "

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jud Hair's discussion D-1 versus D-16 ... Is the D-16 worth the price difference? in the group Martin Owners
"The 1 series is not made in mexico, at least mine wasn't (early 2010). The difference is the satin finish, which is much easier to apply, the stratabond neck, and the bracing on the D1 is not scalloped, where the 16 is scalloped and gloss top,…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to David VanderMolen's discussion Martin OOO-15M; Opinions, thoughts for fingerstyle purchase... in the group Martin Owners
"That's where I bought my Martin, It is the best place to try them out. If you are 90% on the OOO , ask if they have another in the back of the same model. By comparing 2 of the same model, you can really get a feel for what is best for your…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Al Spohn's discussion Muddy finger picking in the group Martin Owners
"The only solution is to grow out your fingernails, and play with both fingernails and fingertips. You don't have to grow them too long though, just even with the tips of your fingers is long enough. Take a multivitamin with iron if…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to David VanderMolen's discussion Martin OOO-15M; Opinions, thoughts for fingerstyle purchase... in the group Martin Owners
"Nice guitar - I was going to buy a mahogany OM. However, they tend to be a little unbalanced towards the bass side of the tonal spectrum. Not muddy, just a thunderous bass sound and a rolled off high end. I could see it being nice for a blues…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Gerald Germany's discussion Super pick users? What's your preference? in the group Martin Owners
"I love my wegens for mandolin (M150) but I haven't found a better pick than Dunlop ultex .73's for gutair, just the right amount of flex for modern strumming styles, but stiff enough to flatpick and boom chuck if you want to. I burn…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jud Hair's discussion "Real" Martins ... Question for the group ... in the group Martin Owners
"Seagulls are nice instruments, and a Martin would be a great contrast to one, completely different sound.   I know why I wanted one, it was pretty simple really. When I was a kid, i read "a Solitary Blue" at a really hard time in my…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jud Hair's discussion "Real" Martins ... Question for the group ... in the group Martin Owners
"Enjoy the hunt, fall in love, settle down, and forget that you could buy another instrument.  It seems like people are constantly looking for something better than what they have, and never fully exploring the instrument they have."

Joshua Kevin Fraser replied to Jud Hair's discussion "Real" Martins ... Question for the group ... in the group Martin Owners
"The best "investment" you can make is to play a bunch of them.  I went to Elderly thinking I would be purchasing a D-15, D-16, or a D-18, instead, a OM1e spoke to me, and I had to have it. All Martins sound good, as far as the ones…"

Joshua Kevin Fraser commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"Love my OM-1e. Fits me perfectly. I've always wanted a Martin, ever since reading "a solitary blue" when I was 13 (2 years before I started playing). I went into Elderly a year ago, set to but a D-18, D-16gt, or a D1, but walked out…"
