Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm a professional guitarist. I live in near Buffalo NY. As a bandleader I play Bluegrass, Country, Blues, R&R, R&B. As session player I play those and other styles both on acoustic and electric guitars. I also play solo gigs featuring Piedmont, and Delta style blues guitar. My latest recording is a collection of Flatpicking tunes with 13 year old Ben Doerfel called "Generation Gap". For the last two years I've toured with the Broadway show Ring of Fire, the music of Johnny Cash as lead guitarist. Currently I'm home playing dates with my Bluegrass band Mountain Run and my electric band The Lo Blu Flame.
"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
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
