dudley, i saw you in salem, mo at the jim and jesse festival in maybe 81 or 82. i had been playing guitar since i was a teen but had only recently been introduced to bluegrass music. i had never seen or heard anyone flatpick a guitar like that until that day. since that time i have spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars chasing this craft. i wanted you to know that you started this. thanks, ed carr, alma , ar
Dudley, well i am rather old, plain, and gray but this is probably not the best shot of me. as soon as my daughter gets home from kerrville i plan to enlist her support in getting a more accurate (although not neccessarily better) photo posted. Ed Carr
Thanks for accepting. I've found that you don't have to be a competition level picker to truly enjoy the music and the people involved with it. Good people and good music make all of my frustrations with trying to learn worth while.
The cover story in FGM is one of the best I've read in the last 3 years and "Dudley's Guitar Workshop"...well just words to play and live by.
