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.

Aura Lee - Hatlee Band - Aura Lee instrumental video with lyrics

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"

"This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!"
