Chris replied to Jim Samuel's discussion Starting Over - With Essentials in the group Flatpicking Essentials
"I like finger style too, all sorts from Pierre Bensusan, Bert Jansch, Townz Van Zandt. Can you give me a song/ artist that inspires your fingerpicking, just so I know what artists and style you are talking about?"

"I understand where your coming from Tony. I do the same kind of thing except with songs, scales, genres, songwriting etc. I go between them and don't feel I've learnt that much. I'm having fun doing it all, don't get me wrong,…"

"Well, mine's was built in 2004 and bought in 2008 - I've had it just over two years. Plenty scratches and flaky laquer now - nothing major, mostly pick marks and scratches from having great fun... :O)"

"Steven, cheers for the photo's very nice guitar you have! its nice to see another martin with the bearclaw marks. I think the bearclaws add 'character' to the guitars as dents and scratches do, cant wait to get the 1st dent/scratch…"

Steven Boyne replied to Chris's discussion New Guitar in the group Scottish flatpickers
"Hi Chris, Congrad's - the D-18 is a fine guitar :O) A couple of years ago I was in a similar situation to you (same budget / one guitar opportunity) and managed to find a D-18V. Mind you, I had to travel all the way from Cornwall to Cardiff…"

Chris replied to Chris's discussion New Guitar in the group Scottish flatpickers

Steven Boyne replied to Chris's discussion New Guitar in the group Scottish flatpickers

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"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…"

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
