The Dave Nachmanoff Flatpicking Dance Mix

Dave Nachmanoff (who will be featured in the November/December issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine) has just released an instrumental dance single (no not 'Joe The Georgian') on iTunes! It's a cover of a very well known song but we'll let you discover for yourself which one. The producer (Jeff McCullough) did a fantastic job, and for less than a buck you can download it, carry it around in your iPod, and play it at your next

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
