Ciao Joe, thanks very much for "The Roseville" tune from the last issue. A beautiful melody that I just love playing along with the Altan cd. The rhythm it's very hard to get into, Daithi Sproule is a genius.
Ciao e grazie.
About six or seven months ago, I bought your book "First Lessons Flatpicking Guitar" from the Mel Bay series. I have made more progress utilizing your book than I have in the last five or six years of trying to teach myself to play guitar. What book of yours would you suggest I buy for myself next? I absolutely enjoy playing the flatpicking method. Also, my wife just bought me a banjo. Could you please also suggest a banjo book for me. (I am more interested in the three-finger picking method, not the claw style hammer method.) Thanks very much.
Hello Joe, I have some lessons I got from you many years ago. Flat-pickin guitar Joe Carr.Ridge Runner Home lessons copy right 1983. I have learned and forgotten several songs from those lessons and we are still learning songs off them. I still have some of the tablature but the cassettes are long gone by now. I don't suppose there is any place I can still get the audio part of those lessons. I just ordered Bluegrass Flatpick Guitar Favorites from Texas Music supply but I expect it has changed some from the ridge runner lessons.
Any way we are still a pickin your songs!!!
I am a slow learner but thanks for all the years of instructions

"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
