First Steps on a Hopefully Long Journey.

I must be nuts! Just ordered my first flatpicking guitar tutor, "First Lessons Flatpicking Guitar", by Joe Carr. Not too much of a risk at $14.95 though it will probably cost about $40 to send it to Scotland! At least it has a book, CD, and DVD. Watch out you flatpickin' maestros - I'm on your tail!
Also signed up for a years subscription to the FGM magazine, with CD. Hopefully I'll larn something there too?

he's right. I'd love to go and visit him; although,

I must admit to a little fear.

What's the fear about? Not coming back of course I've been

in the mood to move lately.

A working man's review of a Whipple Creek Mahogany Dreadnaught

For the last six months I've been waiting for this guitar & wondering just what it would be like. The EIR/Adi dread I heard Robert Bowlin play at Peaceful Bend in May was so I great, I wondered if it was the exception. Well after almost 5 days of playing my Mahogany Dreadnaught, I'm ready to share my thoughts on this new instrument.

This guitar is without doubt the finest sounding new instrument I've ever played. It's loud. The sound is balanced string to string, and note for note all… Continue
