Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Recently moved to a farm in Ohio, after many years in Nashville. Mostly a fingerpicker, but I dabble in flatpicking for giggles. Have performed with Pete Hutlinger, Bill Monroe, Thom Bresh, Muriel Anderson, blah, blah. I do some arranging for Mel Bay and a few magazines. I am trying to get involved again, after some medical problems incl. a major brain injury, and a couple of hand surgeries. I've heard my profile is on some Mel Bay site, but I have no idea where, and don't have the patience to look for it. Hope to meet some nice people. I miss the talent pool in Nashvegas, but I love my farm. How do I find out when & where the contests are? Thanks, Jim
Sounds like you have some natural talent. I play well
enough to enjoy myself but have a long way to go.This
link can provide tab and backup tracks for Lonesome Fiddle Blues and it's free. Maybe it can help you get back into it while you recover from your surgery.
hey james ! I hope you are doing well, and keeping warm. thanks for the comment you left on my page. Its nice to hear back from the folks who appreciate what Robert and I are doing. We started a new cd this winter. Who knows how many years it will take to finish it, but at least we started. Please keep in touch,
"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…"
