Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am starting my 20th year at the Bar D Chuckwagon, north of Durango, Colorado. Our group played Carnigie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry in November and just returned from Japan. We were on the road from coast to coast in our 2007-2008 season along with playing 110 nights in a row during the summer months. Incuding all of the shows and my recording studio I stay very busy playing music. Life is good...
You bet we will stop by. I've been looking for an excuse to visit you for a while. You are an amazing guitar/mandolin player and a great guy to hang with. I'm still grateful to you for playing such great back-up for me in '94! I remember everything except what happened a few minutes ago. See you soon I hope.
Best, Mark Cosgrove

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"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…"
