Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've been flatpicking for 20 years. The unique thing about me is that I'm left handed. I live in Indianapolis and had to drive to Gruhn Guitars in Nashville to find one. I also have a custom build Dan Crary Signature model Taylor. This was a rare treat my wife bought me back in 1996. She bought it from South Paw guitars in Houston Texas and we actually had to get Dan Crary's approval to have it built. Curious to know if i was the first to have this done. Anyway, I love the Taylor (easier to play)but nothing beats the tone of the Martin. Although it's hard to find people to jam with nowadays, it' still my favorite thing to do.

"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
