FGM Podcast 58 with Roy Andrade

Welcome you to the another edition of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine's podcast. In the podcast Flatpicking Guitar Magazine editor Dan Miller will be talking with Roy Andrade.  Roy is an assistant professor at East Tennessee State University.  He and Doc Watson's daughter Nancy have released an incredible 4 CD set of Doc Watson material along with a 73-page hard bound book that tells the story of the Watson family and the tunes that are on the CDs.  The project is titled "Milestones: Legends of The Doc Watson Clan."  The large majority of this material was recorded at the Watson home by either Doc or Nancy and has never been heard outside of this collection.  Dan met up with Roy at the Grand Targhee Music camp and they talked about the project.  We hope you enjoy listening to their conversation.  To find out more about this project, visit:  http://www.openrecordsmusic.com/

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.

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.
