Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Played all sorts over the years from solo Folk club gigs to a nice duo for about 10 years in the 80s/90s, with a hot bluegrass banjo player (Ian Sharp).
Retired from playing full time in 95 and got a day job - started playing again a couple of years ago and have become obsessed with fiddle tunes - play every day now. Other interests - mad on motorbikes - Triumph Bonneville and BMW r80 st

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"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…"

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
