Favorite Guitars
My 1946 Martin D-18 and 1976 D-18. But I have been using my 1978 Martin HD-28, and my 1995 Martin D-18GE too. They are all great sounding guitars.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Howdy Folks!
Just to let you know, you can find out a whole lot about me at www.jimnunally.com and at www.myspace.com/jimnunally
I have a brand new DVD on strums called Jim Nunally - The Art Of Rhythm Guitar - Strums. Covers the same material I teach at music camps. You can find my solo CD Gloria's Waltz online at my website too.
Of course you can get information on the bands I play in, The David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, John Reischman and the Jaybirds, and with Dix Bruce as well. Plus my tour schedule.
Do you have a website?

Here's what I'm using these days

1946 Martin D-18 with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience and John Reischman and The Jaybirds. But I have been using my 1978 Martin HD-28 with the Jaybirds too because it has a Fishman Ellipse onboard.
I take out my 1996 Martin D-18GE now and then when the 46' needs a rest from the road.
With Dix Bruce I mostly play the 1978 Martin HD-28.
I use Red Bear Trading company's Tortis pick 1.65mm. I have a Jim Nunally signature model with them. I have been using these picks for over two years now and they work perfect, as good as any shell picks I have ever had.

Hey Jim,

Saw y'all at the Old Settler's Festival in Austin. Had my son with me and he thought that was the best show of the weekend...You did in one hour what I haven't been able to do in 17 years...interest him in our music...keep up the good work, you never know the impact you have.

Thanks to you too Jim! We sure need to get you, John and the rest of the Jaybirds back to Winfield. It's been way to long!

Jim, looking forward to you and the Jaybirds coming to Memphis on September 20. I'm getting the word out. You guys are fantastic! Also, loved Gloria's Waltz. Your style of rhythm and breaks is my idea of good taste in music.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for helping us out with the new Prairie Flyer CD. So what did you like about it. I'd would have like to play my breaks with more conviction, but I thought that the guitar rhythm seemed to be recorded well. Anyway hope all is well and I'd like to hear from you and get your thoughts on the CD. Thanks Steve

Jim,

I was in your class at Kaufman Kamp '06 and in the band dynamics class on Wed. morning with you, John and Trish. Those 2 classes in hindsight were the best classes I had all week. I've used more that I picked up from you since then than anything else I learned that week.

Keep up the great picking. I've really enjoyed "Gloria's Waltz", the tribute to your mother. Good stuff!

Hi Jim: How are you doing? How is the '46 doing? Are you getting those cracks humidified or fixed? I look forward to picking a few with you at Sorrento
See you then!
Greg

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
