How does he do it

Hello everyone. I just found this site and of course immediately signed up. I'm another fan of Norman Blake. I live around the Washington, DC area and over the years have seen him in small venues a couple times.I have been flailing away on my Martin box on and off for some years, all totaled I don't see a lot of improvement.

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
