Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Hi, until recently I was a self-taught guitar player. In addition to the guitar, I play the mandolin, and bass. In December 2005 I joined Just Because Bluegrass. Born and raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania I moved to the Washington DC area after college, and currently, reside in Pasadena, Maryland.
I have relatives in Delmont, Greensburg and Jeanette. I went up to that area to visit aunts uncles and cousins early in 2007 with a couple of my brothers. I don’t think I have ever been to a Steeler game in person. I went up to see the pirates play Atlanta in a playoff game in 1992 (pirates lost) and have seen them many times here in Atlanta. I did get to see a couple games at Forbes Field when I was young. Ralph Kiner, Wally Westlake but your probably too young to remember them. I started following the pirates in 1949, and was in the US Navy when they won it all in 1960. I still remember listening to Rosey Rowswell and Bob Prince when I was a kid in Falls Creek and later when I could pickup KDKA from NY and NC.

"My gear is much better than my skill - for straight flatpickin', I play a Martin D-18 Authentic 1937. My go-to guitar for just about everything else (and it flatpicks just fine, thank you) is my Huss & Dalton D-RH with a Red Spruce top.…"
"Hey Craig. Thanks for the kind comment. The credit for this version should really go To Steve Kaufman who's arrangement it is. Good luck with your bluegrass studies, it's wonderful music and great fun to play. I look forward to…"
"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…"
