FGM Podcast 60 with Tim May and Pat Flynn

In this podcast our good friend Tim May interviews Pat Flynn.  Many of you will know Pat from his years with the New Grass Revival, his involvement in many studio projects in Los Angeles and Nashville, his touring and recording as a solo artist, or his popular flatpicking instructional video.  In this podcast Tim is talking with Pat about his new CD titled "reNew."  This is the third recording in a trilogy of Pat Flynn CDs.  The first two CDs were titled "reQuest" and "reVision."  You will also get to hear a cut from the new CD.

FGM Podcast 59 with Eli West

In this podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller caught up with Eli West at the Grand Targhee Music Camp back in August of 2014. Eli was featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine. Since that time he has continued to perform and record with his musical partner Cahalen Morrison, but he is also now involved with Jayme Stone's Lomax Project. Dan and Eli talk about this new project and more during their visit and you'll get to hear a cut from his newest CD with Cahalen. I hope you enjoy this edition of the Flatpicking Guitar Magazine Podcast.

Welcome to Flatpicking Guitar Magazine's Network!

Flatpicking Guitar Magazine is a bi-monthly periodical, and companion audio CD, dedicated to presenting all aspects of the art of flatpicking the acoustic guitar as pioneered by such great guitarists as Doc Watson, Clarence White, Norman Blake, Tony Rice, and Dan Crary. Our goal is to help you increase your own skill level and enjoyment of this fine art as it pertains to the musical genres of bluegrass, old-time, folk, Celtic, Western swing, gypsy jazz, new acoustic music, and acoustic rock. To that end, the magazine primarily focuses on guitar instruction. We also feature articles on rhythm guitar playing, guitar building and maintenance, and we also review flatpicking CDs and instructional books and videos. This network page is a place to share flatpicking news, photos, new music, videos, and more.
