Thanks for the conest info Jerry - Boy those must be tough contests to win. Mando and Fiddle do have some advantages. I'm sure it's fun just to be a part of. Do you know of any video available online of these contests. Also I would also love to check out some vids of your playing. I'm new to this site and either there aren't any videos or I'm not smart enough to be able to find them.
I'd love to catch up and maybe take a lesson from you at one of the events you participate at. What's next on the calendar as far as events go?
"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
