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.
