"Kathy have a great tour! Still playing your music since Kaufman Kamp 2008. Hope to be able to see you in the Northeast some time in the future. Your beautiful technique and expertise inspires me so thank you. "
"My, Oh, My... Did I find that right place or what? I have my cold weather, wet weather, hot weather packing all done and laid one week's worth of K. Kamp shirts. Ya gotta plan ahead and practice, practice, practice!"
"It'll be nice to see you Amy. I got itchy fingers and 6 strings to satisfy the urge! Little by little the 8 strings are being nudged over by the six. Thanks for the Kaufman photo memories. You're great fun."
Hey baby: good to hear from you. I believe I am frozen solid, at least, my driveway still is. I hope to see you at Wilmington Winter Fest....Spring is just around the corner--god knows, I'm ready for it. Be good, stay warm and I'm delighted you're one of my network buddies.
I need 12 strings to hide behind, not just 6! You're right, Leo builds one fine guitar. I've got 2 with a 3rd one coming shortly. I won't make Kamp this year - my biz is WAY off - but hope to be back by next year!

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…"
