"Jamey, Thanks for sharing your video. This is a perfect example of the type of tunes I've been searching for. You did a fantastic job picking this one! I enjoyed it a great deal."

Tabs you'd like to see...

Every once in a while you hear a tune that just "speaks to you" and you say to yourself, man I'd love to learn to play that. The problem is, if you're like me, your desire over shadows your talent and you need a little help. While I'm beginning to understand that tabs can be a crutch that can slow down your progress, I find I still need them to get a kick start every once in a while. All that being said, the real question is... Are there tunes that members haven't been able to find or just…See More

GhostPicker replied to Louis Ray Young Jr.'s discussion blueridge br140/160
"Louis, I have a BR-160 and a BG-160. The BR is more of a "Martin copy" and the BG is more of a "Gibson copy". They have a little different look and feel from one another but they both have a REAL BIG sound. The BR's neck is…"

GhostPicker commented on Dan Miller's blog post Flatpicking Podcast with Dix Bruce
"Every year at our family Christmas gatherings, I always manage to have a guitar handy just in case someone asks "hey did you bring your guitar this year?" The family loves singing Christmas songs by candlelight and the additon of the…"

Favorite Haunts, Stores, and Luthiers

Everytime I go to a new city, one of the things I try to do is visit a local guitar store. After all, every guitar deserves to be seen and played :) We often talk about our favorite guitars, picks, strings, capos, etc. but I haven't seen a lot of discussion about people's favorite "haunts" for "just looking" or purchasing guitars and accessories. I'd like to hear where you all like to shop. I know there are some amazing places where the prices are good, the service is great, and the people are…See More

"Wow! What a great link. Thanks for sharing. (The video features were really cool too)"

GhostPicker commented on Dan Miller's blog post Flatpicking Essentials, Volume 1: Rhythm, Bass Runs & Fill Licks
"Like most everyone else that is "self-taught", I've developed all the bad habits that you could possibly develop. The first two volumes in this series have been a great help in undoing some of the damage. I particularly appreciate…"

GhostPicker replied to Irving Sanders's discussion What type or brand guitar do you play?
"If the average picker is anything like me, it's very hard to stroll through a store and not pick up every guitar in the place, "just to see how it sounds". With every new guitar purchase I make, goes a promise to my wife that…"

GhostPicker replied to Roger Ferguson's discussion What's the weakest "link" in your flatpick technique
"Bruce, I feel your pain. I'm in exactly the same situation. I've always felt that being left-handed and playing right has kept me from being a better player. (At least that's the excuse I'm using). I tried a left-handed guitar…"

GhostPicker commented on Paige Anderson's group Martin Guitar Owners
"Never picked up a Martin guitar that I didn't want to own. Sadly, I only own one. It's a HDC - 28 (Herringbone with a Cedar top) built in 1993. I love the warm tone of the cedar and it smells really good..."

Aura Lee - Hatlee Band - Aura Lee instrumental video with lyrics

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"

Ragtime Annie

"This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!"
