Hi Dave,
I listened to "Blue Railroad train" today on Doc Watson's Southbound album, then again I found it on youtube.com. (seek: Doc Watson - 1991 - Blue Railroad Train). The song on Southbound also seems to be fingerpicked by Doc, Merle Watson plays flatpick rhythm guitar along with it. The lyrics are not hard to obtain. I will try my hand on the fingerpicking today and after that try to elaborate flatpicking based on that. I will let You know about the results.

Dave,
I tabbed a flatpicking version of Blue Railroad Train but don't know yet how to send it to You.

Yep Dave,
The nut is 1 3/4, it's reminiscent of the 37 marting necks.

Hi, Dave. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and especially to respond. I'm sorry if my plea for help offended you. In general, I've found my fellow flatpickers to be genial, thoughtful and quick to lend a hand. I wouldn't wish this on anyone, but if you ever have the misfortune to lose a guitar (or even something more precious) and it's in my power to help you find it, I certainly will. Sincerely, Chuck Ervin

Thanks! I basically arranged this by heart. I don't have tab or a written guitar arrangement, I have a lead sheet, but since I am a chordal jazz player, I can instantly arrange tunes. Let me know if you want the lead sheet. Thanks Ron

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…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

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
