Kenny commented on Downtown Freddy Brown's group Taylor Guitar Owners and Lovers
"High Freddy, I own a 2009 Taylor 214. It's the first guitar I've ever bought. About the same time as I bought my 214 I started learning to flatpick.  I know it's not a bluegrass guitar but for now it's what I have and I…"

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I took an introduction to guitar as a sophmore in high school then picked up a few things here and there and then played very little then nothing in the last ten years... until last year.
I started taking lessons and got bit by the bluegrass bug.

It's slow going at age 51 but I have a very patient and encouraging guitar educator who is a member of this site.

I'm simi-retired with a great wife and two grown daughters.
Oh yea, we have a five year old dochsund.
