"Thanks for offering the hand of friendship, Tim. Love your mp3 files - never heard a bluegrass version of Limehouse Blues before. It sounds great, and great fun.
Here is my mp3 website, should you have the time to pop by:
"Hi Nancy, I just joined this group and have read your comment asking if there were any Scottish flatpickers here. Well, I live in Edinburgh. I play both flat and fingerstyle. You can listen to some of my fingerstyle Scottish arrangements…"
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..

Thanks for your inspirational site.
God bless ,

I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"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…"
