Profile Information

Favorite Flatpickers
Gosh, so many greats to even single one out. I grew up on Doc Watson, Norman Blake, Dan Crary, Tony Rice, Russ Barenberg, and Dudley Murphy. The late but great Charles Sawtelle was a big influence because he played with such abandonment and impov. Taught me it was alright to go out on a limb if your roots run deep.:-) Those are the top o' the list. But, I enjoy so many great flatpickers.
Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
Again, hard to sort out favorites. Stay tuned - I may put some up on video...
Favorite Guitars
Guitars that play well and smell old. And Bourgeois, specifically Country Boy Deluxe and Slope D "Banjo Killer".
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I just turned 44, and I have been playing guitar since I was 5. I was raised in bluegrass and flatpicking guitar. I placed 3rd place at the Winfield nationals (1986 - 87). I have been the acoustic guitarist for country superstar Tim McGraw for the past 18 years - and I still love to flatpick.....

Yes, Dr. Huck is my father. All is going great here. We have been doing quite a bit of studio work. We are now putting together a "fiddle tunes" album of some good ol' standby's. Dad is doing great and is still collecting instruments. Next time your down, definately give us a yell. I will tell dad you said hello.

Hi Bob! Thanks for the welcome! I have been playing a mmid 70's martin for quite a while, but it is in very bad need of new frets, so I have been plunking away on my kids baby Martin.

Hi, Bob...the J-45 banner is a 1942, a real early one according to David Harvey at Gibson. (I was out of town yesterday and just got your question.)

Minner, you're killing me with these recordings. St Anne's has never been more saintly. You're inspirational, but you're killing me.

::nods::

...yup, killing me dead.

Hi Bob,
Thanks for the welcome, glad to be a part of the flatpicking world.
Dan Miller has given us all a wonderful service so we can all connect.
Very nice guitar playing by the way. I enjoyed hearing your version of Blackberry Blossom. You have a nice style of playing.
Your Friend,
Greg Morton
