Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Came to flatpicking late (mid 30's). Inspired by my first Doc concert. Play in a local bluegrass band and enter Wayne Henderson's festival most every year. I've learned a lot from the wonderful Mr Steve Kilby.

A few more songs to share

Hi friends, I've been gone a long time from the network, but looks like I'll be able to play more nowadays. I had the most fabulous week of instruction in my life when I took Russ Barenberg's Advanced Guitar class at Augusta back in August. He got me unstuck - now I know how to impove. Russ does skype lessons now - I'd encourage you to take advantage.

This past year I started pickin' with a new friend, Eugene Ellis from Mebane NC. Fabulous player. I've posted a few very rough recordings… Continue

A few songs to share

Hi anyone, I have posted a version of Blackberry Blossom (arrangement is largely Rick Williams from bluegrassbooksonline.com - check him out, good stuff) which is about half of what I want to play in Wayne Henderson's contest. I'm smoothing out a version were I change to drop D for one more go around.

Also, there's a version of "Homestead on the Farm" that I was inspired to do for my mother. I made a CD for her on her 70th birthday as she deals with advancing… Continue

Hi Rick, Nice to hear from you. I got to see Dan last year in Denver with another old Kokomo Bro, Tim Moody. I still record and perform with Vince Gill and off and on with the Irish group the Chieftains and have been produced Mike Ckeveland last three cd's. Take care, Jeff

yeah... inventing the internet seemed like a good idea at the time.

hi LJ, you were the only guy to mention then euphonon strings. i have been using them for years and you certainly can't beat the price. since I'm ready to order another 2 doz. sets would you please tell me what gauges you choose for your true mediums. i've got two of Walter's guitars which i am very fond of but last april i bought a traditional Brazilian dread from Huss & Dalton and have simply never played such an incredibly loud, clean and well defined sounding guitar and i have always made it a point to plan any and all guitars i've been able to get my paws on. i've also found i love the sound and feel i get from the red bear picks. better than my real tortis shell.

Yea, Augusta is a really amazing festival, it was always an eye opener for me. i've never wrote any songs but i've been messing around with a few ideas recently so i'm pretty excited about that. and i've been looking over his book too, it's definitely pretty challenging but i think it's probably the easiest way to learn the fretboard that i've found. glad i found a couple of people on here, but i hope to pick with you again soon. i'll definitely be at augusta this year.

"Just added the Taylor K22e to my collection. Physically, it is the most beautiful guitar that I have ever seen. The lovely KOA and maple combinations are literally breathtaking. The KOA and boxwood ocean vine inlay on the fret board is striking, as…"
