Hi Rob,
living in L.A., can sometimes be equivalent to riding on a runaway train-- with no safe place to jump! Well, the train has slowed down some, and here I am back on site listening and trying to learn more celtic music. I'm off today to try and find some useful books on the subject. My aunts and uncles used to sit around with mandolins and violins and play all the scottish reels while my heavy-set granny would lift her skirt and jig away-- so.. I learned to play the reels on the guitar... but never gave much attention to the real beautiful, lyrical celtic tunes. I am excited to put the time into learning them. Thanks for your inspirational site.
God bless ,
Nancy

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…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

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
