Guy Hill replied to Todd McFarland's discussion What brand do you play?
"Willie, I fear you are right. its a beautiful beast but somewhat surplus to requirements now that I have the HD-28 as well as the J-45. I'm lusting after a Southern Jumbo True Vintage so maybe I'll trade in the Moon & J-45 for a nice…"

Guy Hill replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I'll second this comment. Blue Chip picks are brilliant & Matthew a pleasure to deal with - he even does a lefty version!"

Guy Hill replied to Todd McFarland's discussion What brand do you play?
"Gibson J-45 (2005) - My main daily player & favourite guitar. Short scale makes learning Bluegrass tunes so much easier & her sweet tone is ideal for playing country/rock etc. Really nice balanced tone but a touch light in the bass…"

Guy Hill replied to Kenny's discussion Drills, Warmups and Practice Routine. Need a Recommendation
"I'd strongly advise taking a look at our very own host Dan Miller's excellent "Flatpicking Essentials" series. I have the 1st 3 volumes & they've helped me enormously."

Guy Hill replied to Chad's discussion Blue Chip Opinion by an Ex-Skeptic
"I just love my TAD 40 "lefty". I keep trying other picks for comparative purposes, but always end up using the Blue Chip. Fully worth the $35 IMHO."

Guy Hill replied to Shane Bumgarner's discussion Where do you live?
"I live in a small village near Romsey in the beautiful Test Valley, Hampshire, UK. I travel to work in London every day, so lunchtime picking would also be a possibility!"

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am a UK-based lefty & started playing guitar late (aged 47). After 3 years learning fingerstyle I "converted" to flatpicking on my 2nd visit to Kaufman Kamp (2008).

Guy,

I don't see no flatpick in your hand in your picture here! :-)

Glad you're here... this flatpicking thing is addictive, isn't it?

Hey Guy!

I got an awfully complimentary report on your Moon from Gary over on Leftyfrets!

Guy,

I would absolutely LOVE to get to go to Kamp, but life, finances, etc., so far have conspired each year to prevent that from happening. I DID get to meet Gary in person after having done guitar swaps, emailing and telephone conversations and such over a 2-3 year period. He's a good guy and I think it would be really cool to have a whole room full of lefty guitars and guitar players, although I'd really like to have one righty, just so they could understand what we routinely face surrounded by a sea of "backwards" instruments ;-)

Hi Guy,
I had it in one of Steve's Kamp books. Maybe '05? It was an intermediate version. I'll see if I can dig it up for you for next summer if you like. I'm really glad you enjoy that version of "Fiddler's Dram".

Norman's Preferences

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
