Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm 49 and started flatpicking about 5 years ago. I've made some awesome friends in our world through the Flatpick-List, flatpicking.com and other sites. I help maintain LeftyFrets.net, a site dedicated to all things lefty in guitars and other instruments.
I live near Albany, Ga. - always looking for pickers to pick with!
Thanks so much for the compliment!
Hey if you know of more folks interested in playing with dynamics, please refer them to my new Strums DVD. It can be purchased at my website jimnunally.com.
Thanks again Gary.

I was in your class at Kaufman Kamp '06 and in the band dynamics class on Wed. morning with you, John and Trish. Those 2 classes in hindsight were the best classes I had all week. I've used more that I picked up from you since then than anything else I learned that week.
Keep up the great picking. I've really enjoyed "Gloria's Waltz", the tribute to your mother. Good stuff!
