Received your Right Hand Technique book this past Thursday. I'm heading back to the drawing board and back down to 120 bpm. I had already started some bad habits you touched on early in the book. Better now than later.…"
BTW the Right Hand Workout seems to be doing some good things now after 6 weeks or so. I am taking it pretty slow, moving on only when I can do given exercises fairly mindlessly - so I am only now starting in on the 'folded'…"
"Jeff, can you confirm something that I think I have already figured out?
In the audio tracks included with the "A Study in Flatpicking", each track for a tune contains both variations, with the first track being 'up to speed'…"
Thanks - and greetings to a fellow alum. Believe it or not, I just returned from Italy about four days ago. I went for a vacation with my wife, not to gig. But I'd love to go back sometime. It's a beautiful place.
The weather was mostly good, with rain just the past few days. We spent four days in Florence, four days in Rome, three days in Venice and three days in Cinque Terra. The food was amazing and the sights were astounding. Where in Italy do you live?
I live in Milano but outside of town so it's more peaceful and no traffic jam. You saw the best of Italy...did you use Rick Steve's book by any chance....I remember I told you to buy it a year ago when I bought 2 of your cds from you. I'm asking because Cinque Terre is R.S. favorite.

Howdy. I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam. Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not. So my messages have all been returned to me. There are many Tim Allreds around. I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
