Doc Watson, Dan Crary, Tony Rice, Steve Kaufman, Norman Blake Too many to list. Can't Forget about the one and only Clarence White. John Carlini is also one of my favorite musicians and instructors.
Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
Love the old ones like Whiskey Before Breakfast, St. Ann's Reel, Temperance Reel, Black Mountain Rag... But also like to pick classical, rock and Jazz. Minor Swing, Vidaldi's Spring Movement, Flight of the Bumblebee, etc. In other words...too many to name.
Taylor, Vintage Martin's, Blueridge. I play a Taylor 310 my father gave me.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I love to play all styles of music. Recently have been playing more Mandolin, but Guitar is still my strongest instrument. Mandolin playing has certainly helped my guitar playing. My father is a great flat-picker so he got me started years ago, and recently I have really gotten gotten back into it.
"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
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
