Ah... I forgot about your HD. That's a killer! Actually, I remember Mike's 21 being a pretty amazing guitar. My Martin has been banished to the closet... in Mass. It plays well and sounds ok... if you're alone in a quiet room. Someday we'll trade it toward something good!
This is hard. I'm more of a rhythm player myself, so I guess I pay more attention to that when listening to guitar players. I feel the only way to have a successful Bluegrass band is to have a great rhythm guitar player. So, I would have to say that some of my favorite guitar players are Del McCoury, Tony Rice and Dan Tyminski.
Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
I like pickin' Big Sandy River and Rebecca right now.

I'm the leader and Rhythm guitar player for Acoustic Blue. I do play lead as well, but not a whole lot. I pride myself in my solid bluegrass style rhythm playing. The band is really making a name for itself and really starting to take off. Check out our website or myspace page at myspace.com/acousticblueonline if you get the chance.
