Remembered not forgotten

Here’s a funny story...more of a giggle “Ha!” than a laugh factory, but it’s still a worthy tale none the less. Not to mention it’s all true, every bit of it I know. I was there.

Broken Duck!



A couple of weeks ago at the Bluegrass jamming session in Lauries Bar, Glasgow, I stepped forward for the first time and broke my duck. Took my geetar since I had just bought a new swish padded gig-bag and with a view to accompanying myself on some songs since, atm, I cannot play chords on the mandolin and sing at the same time.

Started with a simple…

Donating a guitar to a needy young, beginning bluegrasser in Nashville.

I am deeply saddened to see the loss that Nashville is seeing in the flood. I feel that music wipes the dirt from the soul in times of need. While I don’t have a very expensive guitar ($180 cort, Dreadnought style

guitar),I keep this as an extra guitar that I keep at work. I’d like to donate

of a guitar (better than nothing) but I’d love to help someone out in the…

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
