Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm 47...been flatpicking since I was 13. Started playing the mandolin about 5 years ago. Don't flatpick much any more. I love both instruments, but for every mandolin player, there are about 100 flatpickers. I started a band about a year ago, called "Brand New Strings". We play festivals and shows all over North Louisiana..."We don't have much fun, but they're sure payin' us a lot of money!"

This has to be on West Coast time cauze, brother these peepers ain't seen 5:10AM in a long long time! hehe
Now about tabedit, it is very cool, you need to look at mandozine.com, and look for practice tunes. they are all tabedit, and there is about 1500 songs on theretabbed for mando, guitar, banjo and fiddle I believe. I'll try to see if I can find it again, plus don't forget about my Brad Davis DVDs they are great for learning and practicing too.

David, You can purchase Twin Picking directly from me if you like for 15.00 + 3.00 shipping. I'm not sure what the site rules are concerning CD sales, etc but you can reach me at: Dudley Murphy, 1418 E. Portland, Springfield, MO 65804 ... also in the phone book. Twin Picking was a lot of fun to record ... all of 3 days and I understand it was the 1st twin guitar album of it's type. All that aside, I still enjoy listening to it and find myself wondering "why don't I play a certain passage like that any more?" Best regards, Dudley

David, I appreciate your kind words and I know Adam will also. I wasn't aware that Twin Picking had much influence on the flatpicking community. I'm really happy that the album was so helpful to you and perhaps others. Please feel free to pass the word that Twin Picking may be purchased from me. Take care, Dudley

I don't know how often you have heard this over the years, but "Twin Picking" was, singlehandedly, the most influential body of work in my library, during my first 10 or 15 years as a flatpicker...

Hi, David. Twin Picking remains one of my favorite flatpicking albums ever--not slick, flashy or note-perfect, but some great picking with a real sense of fun. If you're interested, there existed at one time a similarly non-slick tab book to go along with this album. Don't know if Dudley would have any of those anymore. If not, you could try a Minnesota music store called Homestead Pickin' Parlor. If anyone other than Dudley or Adam would still have one, it would be them. Their website is http://www.homesteadpickinparlor.com/.

Thanks, Bob...
I actually have the tab book that I bought with the LP, back in 1980, at a music store in Austin (or Dallas...not positive).

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
