"Just joined the club! I have a Martin DXK2AE Koa body. The only thing I didn't like about it when I bought it was the battery was in a little bag inside the guitar and with my big mitts I needed to take the strings off to replace that battery.…"

My name is Paige Anderson and I'm from Grass Valley CA. I play guitar with my family band, Anderson Family Bluegrass. There's my Mom on bass, Dad on banjo, my sister Aimee (13) on fiddle, my brother Ethan (10) on mandolin, and my little sister Daisy (8) on little fiddle (she's learning dobro too), and me on guitar, and sometimes clawhammer banjo.

Thanks for joining the network. I look forward to seeing you at Grass Valley, and so do Emily and Sara. I'm not going to have a booth this year, so maybe we can find some time to pick a few together!
I'll see you there. Say "hi" to your mom and dad for me!
Yeah, I'll be at Grass Valley. Can't wait to hear what you're doing now...It would be wonderful to pick with you. I'm ready for another flatpicking lesson from you!
Kathy Barwick was fantastic with Mountain Laurel up at Strawberry...it rained and rained...Grass Valley will be wonderful. I'm on Frank Solivan's Kid's on Stage team this year!!!!! yeah! see you up there!
Boy do you play guitar...you're one of my favorite flatpickers! You and Molly Tuttle picking on a park bench had my total attention. What main stage did I need to go to...I was getting a major lesson just watching you gals pick. You make me so proud!

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…"
