What DVD is everyone talking about? I'd like to look into it.  Does it really help?

Hello everyone. Just wanted to say Hello. I played quite a bit of bluegrass and flat picking in the late 70's. Really enjoyed it. Figured it was time to get back in the grove. Wish me luck. Scott

Hey All:

I am Clyde Ortego from New Orleans,and I am new to flatpicking guitar any one have any good suggestions for a newbie?

Hey everyone! What is the best way to find other people to get together with to flat pick with?  There aren't many people around here that really enjoy it as much as I do.  Most people around here that play only know rock songs.  Anyone from Central Indiana?
