Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've been playing guitar and writing my own music for years. Performing for weddings and special events.
I give guitar lessons to adults and youth and thus, I'm always looking to broaden my music base. My family is from Scotland, and I grew up with the family in a circle playing and pickin' together. I began my musical life on the accordian, so is there any wonder I turned to the guitar? I've most comfortable performed as part of a group. My wonderful husband has been a great source of encouragement...(actually standing behind me giving a heave-ho push to get me out the door to do some solo gigs :) Thus, I've performed here and there solo as well. I am familiar with flatpicking, but am a long way from even a mediocre level. I hope to learn more.

Hi Nancy,

Glad to see a fellow Los Angeles picker. Do you play or go to jams on a regular basis? I'd like to pick sometime or invite you to our local jams. I play in Long Beach, Pasadena area, or whereever I hear of a jam.

Hi Nancy, I noticed your question on the New Flatpicker's page where you asked about Scottisn players. Tony McManus (aka "Tony McMonster" is from Paisley, Scotland. Mainly fingerpicks, but is a semi-regular at Kaufman Kamp teaching Flatpicking.
BTW, I grew up in Long Beach (or El Norte de Largo) as the graffitti used to say. Art

Hi Nancy, I just joined this group and have read your comment asking if there were any Scottish flatpickers here. Well, I live in Edinburgh. I play both flat and fingerstyle. You can listen to some of my fingerstyle Scottish arrangements here:
www.rmguitar.info/ScottishGuitar.htm - hope you like it (ignore the first two tracks which are just preludes, and jump right into the tunes).

If you have any questions about Scottish music, just ask.
