Mark Thatcher commented on Bryan Floyd's group Celtic Flatpicking
"I am totally with Adam on the capo issue. Besides, most Irish pickers are tuned DADGAD or Dropped D tuning. I think its a very American thing to capo in the key of D."

"Cathal did you or Kathy ever carry the melody in the session or were you two keeping yourselves to accompaniment? I would feel hard pressed not to start fltpicking the tunes. BTW this video was the impetus for me spending about three hours quality…"

Shucks, I wudda brung my LSV, too.
At 8:36pm on May 8, 2008, Rick Crenshaw said…
I play the Proulx 99% of the time. I like it that much, but if you like rosewood this LSV is very nice. A very accomplished picker played it several hours last night and wanted to buy it right then... not lowballed either.

You have one of the older LSV's dont you Rick, with the addy top? No doubt its a hoss.

Hi Mark, Good to hear from you. Are you guys going to any festivals in New England this summer? I'd love to get together and pick some more, Joe Val was a blast.
