I've been playing guitar for about two years and flatpicking for about six months. I really like playing fiddle tunes and learning new licks.

Hi Sheldon, I Have a big Baby Taylor guitar. I like my guitar because of its tone and its loud and ringing. Out of your favorite tunes i know how to play, Whiskey before breakfast, Wildwood flower, and liberty. My favorite songs are Lonesome fiddle blues, RagTime annie, d-minor swing, devils dream, cooleys reel, and Mom And Dads Waltz. I know how to play all these too. I am on youtube.com also, you can go there and type in jr3316. My dad is a guitar teacher and a state champion flatpicker, He taught me all i know. Casey

My Big Baby Taylor is a 3/4 size guitar. Not as large as a regular one. I use D'Addario EJ19 Bluegrass strings.

The only problem if you can call it that is that I can't put it down. Can I embed a photo?

People who have heard me play my whole life have commented that since I got this guitar I sound better. Dont ask me how, but thats what they say. I like Taylors because I have never heard a 'dead spot', and I've heard them on lots of others. Including Martins.
Thanks for commenting.

See where you live in Dadeville. I used to play with Clyde Mcmasters back in the 70's. As I recall he played the fiddle.Just wonder if any Mcmasters still live there?
I am 67 now so Clyde would be in his 70's or 80's .
Not sure how all this works just yet,just joined the group.Hope to hear from you.

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…"
