Colorado Roots Camp

My wife and kids for my birthday have given me money to go to a flatpicking camp.  I am really considering the Colorado Roots Camp outside of Colorado Springs.  I live in Denver so travel costs would be minimal.  One of the instrutor is Beppe G so this is a plus.  I really liked him when I was at Kaufmans Kamp in 2008.  If anyone out there has been to Colorado Roots camp or knows someone whos been I would really appreciate your thoughts on it.ThanksLane RSee More

"I have a Larrivee OM3R. Compaired to my Washburn dread it is quieter ... but it has a very balanced smooth sound ... which is why I bought it ... I love it! I have no one to jam with :( so I can't comment on how it holds up in a group…"

Andy Highfield replied to Lane Rudiger's discussion OM guitars and flatpicking?
"My wife has a custom Martin OM-42 with a red spruce top. It is a few years old now and has opened up nicely. It has good 'cut' and volume-wise is very good. Louder than some dreads, but not louder than all dreads. The main difference is…"

Peter Wilkinson replied to Lane Rudiger's discussion OM guitars and flatpicking?
"I had a Martin OM21 a few years ago, and it was a great guitar for bluegrass. Bass runs sounded fine and it competed volumewise with other dreadnoughts, although I've heard a few OM guitars lose volume on the bottom two strings. I feel that the…"

Eric Wall replied to Lane Rudiger's discussion OM guitars and flatpicking?
"OM size guitars work just fine and hold up well. I just bought a Borges OM that will compete with most dreads. My Collings OM is plenty full-sounding. I've backed up fiddlers at fiddle contests with others and it cuts just fine. There is a…"

Curtis Olson replied to Lane Rudiger's discussion OM guitars and flatpicking?
"I have one with a cutout that I take to jams. Frankly, it doesn't hold up all that well in that environment in terms of volume. However, at my level, I'm not sure I want folks to hear me clearly anyway, so at least for now, it suits my…"

Picked the guitar back up a 1 1/2 years ago after a good 25 year break. Love to flatpick and that was doubled because I went to Steve Kaufmans Kamp June 2008.

Hey Lane, I sure see that my typing was terrible back in August. It turns out that one of my major problems at Kamp was that I was doing a lot more walking and climbing steps (it's so flat where I live that you could ride a bile for 10 miles and never get a chance to coast) Anyway, the extra exercise along with my schedule and skipping some meals, made my sugar crash and that was most of my problem, I think.
Two days after I got back, I had some lab work done and they called me w/in half an hour to tell me how low my blood sugar was and that I needed to eat something and get it up. I think that what happened was that it was just spiking up and down during Kamp.
I'm going to try to make 2009...how about you? Art

"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
