The Music Of David Grisman

Now everyone probably knows exactly who David Grisman is, he's only one of the finest mandolin players that acoustic jazz, bluegrass, etc - has ever known.  In my mind David Grisman is right on par with someone like Ricky Skaggs, he's just more of a jazz and hippie sort than he is a traditionalist.  I love them both, and besides their mandolin playing, both of those guys always have a band with one heck of a guitarist.In the case of David Grisman - he brought Tony Rice into expanding his style…See More

Russ Barenberg

Another extremely fine and well known flatpicker that has been on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine in the past is Russ Barenberg.  I've personally been affected by that fella's fine and tasteful music in the past, as the single largest audience I ever played in front of ...was treated to Barenberg's "Keep It Up/Prince Charlie" from my own fingers.So Russ is important to me, and I took the time to create a bit of a tribute to him, and I hope that maybe some of you will enjoy it too.…See More

Fisher's Hornpipe Guitar

"Great vid!  It's a timeless tune, of course.  That arrangement accents all sorts of notes differently than the Kaufman esque one that I usually play around with.  I like it!"

"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
