Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I am more of a songwriter and singer than a flatpicker, though I once aspired to be one, and have great admiration for anyone who is a tasteful flatpicker. I believe firmly "less is more". I sit on the couch and mess around with flatpicking tunes when nobody's listening.
If you are curious to hear what I do, you can check out: www.myspace.com/wilmaring or www.youtube.com/wilmaring, and of course my website.
Do you have a website?

Hi Wil,
I really enjoyed your songs on youtube ... especially "Back In The Highlife Again" ... really tasteful. Take care.

I figure as a fellow D-21 player, we should be friends on here. There aren't that many of us around.

I like your music....and several tune you do with Robert Bowlin....I'm not a flat picker either, I finger pick, or finger style...use my thumb for strumming...my nails are strong, so I guess I have built in picks..thanks for being on this page...
