I'm happy to see you on this site ... maybe if we lived closer we could get together and pick a few tunes ... :-)
David Wilson reissued Twin Picking on his Perfect Hand Music label ... haven't sold all that many yet but then not many people know it is available on CD. In fact there are not many of today's flat pickers who have never heard of the recording. It was a fun record to make. Adam Granger came to Springfield and we recorded it over a weekend at Nick Sibley's house. Mixed it later at the Dungeon. I believe it is the first twin guitar album of flat picked guitar. We used separate channels for each instrument. Adam wrote a tab book but it hasn't been reissued.
Hey there, Mr. Smith. Great to hear from you! My brother and I try to have a picking party during Christmas vacation every year in Springfield. Hope you and Susan can come this year. -Nancy Cardwell Erdos
