Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I grew up listening to the Grand Ole Opry on WSM out of Nashville as a youngster. Through the years, I kept a guitar close by and never forgot those old tunes that made me tap a foot and grin from ear to ear.
I play those tunes whenever I get the chance. I hope I get a chance to pick with as many of the folks here on the Flatpicking Network as I can. Thanks to all of you for inspiring me to continue "Picking."

I'm glad to hear the book is helping. I'm starting to work through some of the exercises again myself so it sounds like we're in the same boat. Good luck, and keep on picking!
