Phil Waites replied to Michael C Williams's discussion About to Buy a new guitar
"It must be very difficult with all the conflicting advice on brands etc. to make an informed decision. As they say internet advice is worth exactly what you pay for it. I don't know how long you have been playing or how advanced you are, but if…"

Phil Waites replied to Jed C's discussion Limerock
"Chris Moreton used to have a good version on UTube, should still be there- Chris is a great UK based flatpicker many times winner of the UK's Edale Bluegrass festival flatpick guitar contest - it is similar to Dan's version."

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
