Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I'm 30-something years old and I'm married with 1 beautiful wife, 2 beautiful daughters, and 3 spoiled dogs. I've been playing guitar for almost 20 years. I've listened to bluegrass-ish music most of my life, but I just started flatpicking fairly recently. I took lessons from the "very underrated flatpicker" (quoting Tony Rice) Glenn Tolbert for about 6 months. I live in Woodstock, Alabama, and until recently, I worked at the Mercedes-Benz factory in Vance, Alabama to pay the bills.
Hi Marty, Good to hear from you. We don't have anything booked right now for Birmingham or AL. We rarely play down that way for some reason. Our schedule is online at http://bluehighwayband.com/Pages/schedule.htm. Take care, Tim

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"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…"
