Fortunate to have been born into a fantastic musical family. Learned to read music and play piano at very early age. 1st fretted instrument was ukelele, age 7. Began playing guitar at age 10, 5-string banjo at age 15. Began following Wes, Django, Earl Scruggs, and Bach.
Still following them!

Sure John...
we are open to communication....
I've created the NON USA FLATPICKERS GROUP in order to allow people to share more...and further more if you're touring in Europe, you also have some more connections from this network of pickers....it can be helpful....

My best

Hi Mr Carlini,

I've got a question. Not sure if it'll make any sense because maybe it's something that should be obvoius (but it isn't to me).

I love the way you do "Moonlight in Vermont" with Don Stiernberg (an I've stolen what I can). On the bridge -- "telegraph cables sing down the highway...." part -- you seem to almost randomly decide which beats to let ring (a very few) and which beats are left-hand muted (most of them). It sounds so perfect the way you've done it, but it seems random. So is it? ...or am I just missing the obvious count on which you are damp, damp, ringing the rhythm?

unfortunately i moved away from my teacher and was gone for 17 years. by the time i got back he had passed. anyway my problem as i see it is putting together solos, and a sound. i feel that the main problem is just playing more, i got into this rut of just practicing scales cause it's easy mindless stuff and it keeps my chops up but does nothing for the mental side of things. i have a vibe player i mess around with sometimes who is a PLAYER. he comes up with these scale and chord centers and spouts this formula stuff but doesn't seem to be able to explain to me what the actual thought process is (for various reasons that don't need mentioning) anyway i get frustrated cause he just blows by me.

anyway i'd love to find out where i can unlock this formula
