Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Having cut my musical teeth on bluegrass, I've been a flatpicker (and banjo picker) for more than 30 years now. I am currently in a Celtic/Bluegrass ensemble called Sligo Rags, a band which incorporates bluegrass textures into (primarily) Irish tunes; although we do lapse into the occasional "Foggy Mountain Special" and such. Sligo Rags is an extraordinarily busy band, playing shows constantly in Southern and Central California. If you live in the area and would like to come see us, check out http://www.sligorags.com/showschedule

I am also a member of a "Jazz-grass" band called TimbreLine, we play from time to time in Southern California as well. You may visit us at http://www.timbreline.altpro.net
I have included a cut from our 'Sophistry' CD on this page.

I also have my own personal web page at http://www.davidburns.altpro.net
Do you have a website?

Hi David, Thanks for adding me to your pickin friends. I
like (love) the D-35 as well. The only HD-35 I had was stolen
last year. I am awaiting the delivery of a Martin SWDGT I
bought on EBAY last week. Two weeks ago I picked up a
12 fret Collings 0001A-SB . Best classical guitar I have ever played, even without nylon strings. It's a great finger player.
Welcome Sir! Larry

David: Glad to be a flatpickin buddy. Thanks for adding me as a friend. Hope to see you down the road and pick a tune somewhere. Let me know if you are ever in the Orlando Florida area. We have good music, and I always have an extra guitar available if you don't want to fly with yours. Bill

David, thanks for adding me as a friend. I see you like Lowdens. I also own a newer Avalon L-10 and it is an underestimated guitar for flatpicking. Great instruments - Avalon and Lowdens.

Burning the midnight oil - find the flatpick guitar network a nice diversion

Not burning it to that extent - it is only 11.40pm 2nd July down under.
