Im a fellow Okie so thought I'd say hi. No flatpickers around me are there many in Norman? Especially ones that like the type flatpicking tunes you do because we are on the same page there. I'm certainly weak on talent but I'm slow. I'm working on it though. If your interested, Beppe Gambetta will be in my home town at the Lavelle Inn. On january 8. yes I know that's the night of the OU-Florida game but I'm just going to have to record it. I work hard to get people in Davis interested in flatpicking so it wouldn't be right if i didn't support the only flatpicker who ever graced our small town. By the way I just ordered a Red Bear pick and a Blue chip pick, what do you think of yours?
Yes Beppe has a website and is also a member on this site. I'd have to google him to get his site address. It helps me to hear from someone who rates their picking as less than sensational. I don't have many tunes that I can pick all the way through (slowly). And the ones I do it's hard to remember the chords so that I could play them with someone else. But I'm working on it. One reason I like Beppe is that when my son was about 10 (now 30) Beppe played with him in Winfield on stage 5. I always respected Beppe for that. Plus he is a darn good picker. If we ever get the chance to be in the same neighborhood we will have to pick some together. I need someone who doesn't want to run off and leave me at 90mph. Keep in touch. MP
