The above isn't spam, it's a hub I wrote since I'm an obsessive blogger; and I'm starting to delve into writing about flatpicking, guitars, and music.

Stuart Mossman and Mossman Guitars.

Sadly, I've never got to put my hands on one of these - I'd really like to give one a whirl for just a few minutes one day just to see, and say I did, of course.

I know Mark O'Connor plays one, and Dan Crary, of course.

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…

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…

My Tribute to David Bromberg.

David Bromberg

David Bromberg is a guy that we all here on this site should all know well, and he's quite a guitarist.  David also happens to be the world's single greatest authority of American Made Violins.  I thoroughly enjoyed the issue of Flatpicking Guitar dedicated to him, and if you did as well, then I think that you might also…

Hard to imagine someone more dedicated to the kind of music that this website is dedicated to than Ricky Skaggs, and it's harder still to imagine a musician with more musical integrity, and power within the…

"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

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
