"Hey Paul, Good to hear from you. To answer the easiest question first, that should have read "join" Flatpick-L. Flatpick-l stands for flatpick listserve and is a good old fashioned discussion via emails re mainly guitars, styles, picks,…"
"Art, I hope your health is good and you are ok. Thanks for the tip on Beppe Gaambetta. I had never heard of him. Can you tell us a bit more about him? Also, what is Jpin Flatpick_L?

You mentioned "roughing up" the grip on a wegen. I thought of that once, never tried it. I use a TF120 w/out holes for stiffness. I was having a hard time hanging on to it and thought "maybe if I take some sandpaper to it that will make it grip better". I never tried it though. How did you go about "roughing up" your picks?

Thanks Art! Your kind words are very much appreciated. That was Robin Bullock and Joe McColley outside that night and it sure was a ton of fun. I'm glad you were there and enjoyed it too. I look forward to this year's SKAK and I hope to see you there. Roberto and I are firming stuff up for April/May and although I don't know if we'll be able to take advantage this trip on your offer but I thank you for it. It's good to know there are supporters out there!
Mo sends her holiday best and we hope your '09 is healthy and happy and filled with inspiration and good notes.

"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
