Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I live in New Orleans louisiana and come from a musical family two of my late uncles and my late grandmother on my Dad's side played the guitar.

I play the Baritone Ukulele and I am just learning to play the flat top Silvertone which I got repaired for my wife.

She had it since she was teenager.

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
