Robert, welcome! Love your playing. Btw, back in the mid 80's, you cleaned my clock at Winfield.:-) Good to see you here...

Thanks Robert. Yeah, the McGraw gig pays the bills and has been a great thing. I am out right now with my old buddy Frank Ray and his bluegrass group Cedar Hill. Serious traditional grass.:-) Good to be giving the '46 'bone' a workout. Frank is a vintage guitar guy and has a bunch of old D 18s and bones, btw. Take care and I hope to cross paths sometime and pick.

Hey Robert! Good to hear from you. Man we are really looking forward to you and that Mandolin guy your bring out to Winfield with you! It's hard to believe how fast September is getting here.
Take care!

Hey Robert
Hope we can meet up sometime this year. Holler at me about you and that hotshot mando player coming to the Palace. I am touring Slovenia for the rest of the week so give me a chance to get back to business.

Hello Robert,
We are working away here in Durango. I hope you can visit someday. Also, I am not sure about Winfield this year but I hope to see you there. Have a great summer.

I've been listening to your "Pickin Up Steam", and "Watch Your Step" cds that I just received and I already had your "Back Home" with Steve as well as your "Swingin" cds. Love them all and I consider them a must have for any serious flatpicker's musical library. Keep up the great work! You are so clean and clear!

Hey Robert,
You're fantastic! I put one of your CDs on when I was trying to clean up the house today. Well, the house is still a mess! I just had to sit down and listen to every note! Your work is beautiful!!

Take Care,

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
