Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I started strumming and picking a little bit of guitar age age 16. I even had a book by some guy named Steve Kaufman that I learned some strumming and Carter-style picking from, but I didn't know much, if anything, about flatpicking at that point. So I put the Kaufman book away for several years.

At age 23, I first paid attention to flatpicking when my dad bought me a CD called "Flatpicking '98". Shortly thereafter, my dad had me listen to a CD he had just bought called "Bluegrass Rules" (Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder). I got chills when I heard a guitarist named Bryan Sutton tear through the breaks on the CD...I was officially bitten!

I dug out my old Steve Kaufman book and started working up tunes. Then I found out that the "Flatpicking '98" CD actually came from a compilation of tunes covered in a magazine called Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, so I immediately subscribed to it.

I've come a long way, but have a long way to go towards being a really good guitarist. My main regret is that I ignored all the advice to work on rhythm earlier on. I am really concentrating on my rhythm right now. New pickers, WORK ON THAT RHYTHM! (hint: there's more to it than "boom chick") ;-)

Norman's Preferences

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
