FGM Podcast 57 with Thomas Sneed

In this edition of our podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller will be talking with Thomas Sneed, the Director of the Grand Targhee Music Camp.  The Grand Targhee Camp is one of the best music camps that you could select this summer because the instruction is superb, the shows are awesome, the jamming is great, the food is top notch, and up at 8000 feet on the western slope of the Grand Teton mountains, you couldn't ask for a better setting.  The man who makes it all possible is Thomas Sneed.  In this podcast Dan and Thomas talk about his year's event.

FGM Podcast 56 with George Shuffler

  In this edition of the Flatpicking Guitar Magazine podcast we are remembering bluegrass guitar legend George Shuffler.  George passed away at his home in Valdese, North Carolina, on April 7th, 2014 just shy of his 89th birthday.  In this podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller will share with you pieces of an interview that he conduct with George Shuffler at Merlefest in April of 1997.  You will also hear George cross pick the tune "Will You Miss Me."

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.
