Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I started playing guitar during the folk revival in the early 60's. I started gravitating towards Bluegrass when I heard Glen Campbell's 12-String Guitar albums and The Dillards. The defining moment for me was the first time I heard Doc Watson playing Black Mountain Rag from the '63 Bluegrass at Newport album. I had never heard anyone play like that before, and I took up my flatpicking journey right then and there. I put my guitar away for many years when I started my work career, but took it up seriously again in the mid-90's. Music is a journey for me, and an integral part of my life now.

Yeah, playing ole hoss was a bit surreal. I grew up on that
Will The Circle Be Unbroken album, and hearing Doc and Merle Travis talk about it. It is a seriously great guitar and a true piece of guitar history.
