Hey Carl- are you still doing the bluegrass jam at the UU church? First Sunday of the month, if I remember right. One of these days I'll show up. I think we've met, but it's been a while- I'm a local player who spends too much time working and not enough time playing.
Hi Carl- thanks for the reply to my inquiry about the UU jams. Too bad that had to end. I'll try to make it to Bluegrass Supply sessions, but Saturday mornings are usually busy.
If you have a strong stomach, you can check out my songs at http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=792248 . The recordings are almost demo quality, but I decided to go ahead and post them because I might never get around doing a better session. Some of songs could be done in a bluegrass style.
Let me know when you're performing- I'll try to stop by.

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
