Hey Wm. (is it William?)

That video was recorded by LA36 at The John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Sept. of '06. It was a concert to benefit the Celtic Arts Center of Southern California.

Stay in touch!

That's my Martin and that's my Dos XX at my elbow. Don't touch either one.

Can you tell my why my Yamaha 360 has a slight vibration when the string is plucked? I can't really tell where it is coming from. I recently had some work done and thinking I should return, but that was the main reason I had taken it in, I hope to repair it if possible and would like to know of a good place to go, should you know of one. Thanks for any info. Jeanne

Thanks, it was in the truss rod, was loose, along with some adjustments with the face of the guitar, I had it fixed at Efex Electronics in Burien, Ed did a great job. I am so happy I can play it now, not sure if it is more fun than my Guild, but all the same I still like it. Thanks for your reply

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
First off, my friends call me Doc. It's an old baseball nickname. Just go with it.

I grew up in south Texas and then lived in the Austin area for 32 years. I was fortunate to meet and hear a lot of fine musicians there over the years and even got to jam with some of them. I managed to steal a few licks here and there, primarily as a blues player but bluegrass has been my style since 1993. But I'll play anything and will even sing with the proper alcoholic lubrication.

In 1994 I volunteered to work with Old Settler's Music Festival and stepped down in 2004 after serving as a Board member for five years. It's still the finest, most unique festival of its kind in the U.S.

Anyway, that same year my wife received a promotion within her company and we moved to Magnolia, Texas.

I retired from the insurance claims business in 2007 but I am hardly retired. We own a business here and I also work part-time in a local music store and teach beginner guitar and still have students (now good friends) in the Austin/Round Rock area.

Happily married to my best friend for 16 years, we have two beautiful, talented daughters; one attending Texas State University and the other a sophomore in high school.

I own a Santa Cruz Tony Rice that my wife and girls bought me for Father's Day in 2002 and my wife surprised me this Father's Day with a Bourgeois Vintage D. I also own a 1981 Martin D-35, an Epiphone EJ-200 and a red-label Yamaha guitar. Here in my office I keep a nice red Ibanez 335-look alike. I'm only allowed to play it with headphones or when everyone is gone. I also play some dobro, some mandolin and bass.

I am a proud member of the IBMA and Bay Area Bluegrass Assoc.

I have purchased every FGM DVD since the Hurst, Stafford, Sutton one came out and I'm more than ready for the next one.
