Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I learned three chords on a friend's Stratocaster when I was a freshman in college (about 40 years ago). I played acoustic six-string for about 25 years, then attended a Steve Kaufman workshop. Strangely enough, even after that workshop, I still thought I knew how to play. Just slow to get the message, I guess.

Steve told me about a flatpicking "camp" that he was starting at Maryville College, so I attended that very first year. I realized in pretty short order that I did NOT know how to play the guitar. So I've been back every year trying to figure it out. So far, no success, but I have so much fun I keep returning year after year. Any year now, I expect to find self actualization as a player.

Greetings, Dr Mikey! Hmm. As I recall from Kamp, that picture's not a very good likeness. But that was from Kamp...I think you were a little less yellow.

Hi Mikey,
I wish I could come and see you all, it's been so long! Unfortunately with the price of gas, and no one to see to all the animals, I am afraid it is a no. I am still picking, and in fact have a jam session here every Sunday afternoon, so I am still learning new tunes etc.

Please remember me to every one at Kamp, and have a great time!

Best Wishes,

Hazel.

To be honest, I don't know Marguerite personally. But she is in awe of me and that counts for a great deal. So, I'm gonna say I like her a lot and think she's really got it together.

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"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…"
