Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
Ol Timey Fiddle Tunes
I've got 2 Martin D-18 GEs (my workhorses), and a pretty girl, Bourgeois OM 150. Sold all the others (5 of 'em) last winter, since I'm happy with these 3.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Been playing since I was 9 (that's over 40 years now...). I'm a school teacher. I run a non-profit educational organization called "The Nevada Bluegrass Project" (visit our website!---we do a lot of great workshops, concerts and festivals). I teach Beginning Guitar at Steve Kaufman's Kamp in Maryville, TN. Steve is the best!
Hi Cindy, Thanks for being friends. I had a great time at Kaufman Kamp (I was in the winning band at Band Scramble). Thanks for all your hard work at Kamp. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you at Kamp next year.
On the strength of your success with your beginners at KK 2008 I will be bringing my 11 year old son with me for week 2 in 2009. He's already pretty excited about it & is getting his first proper accoustic guitar for xmas - a Cort 000.
Counting the days until next June......
Thanks for adding me as a friend. Hope all is well with you. Sure had a bunch-a-fun at Kaufman Kamp last year. Pick it solid sister. Watch yer down-ups, and I'll See ya somewhere down the fiddle way.................................................

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…"
