LOOKING FOR GENE SLOAN. LEAD GUITAR , PLAYED WITH DON GIBSON IN THE 60`S

RUMORS WAS THAT GENE HAD BEEN KILLED IN A TRUCK WRECK IN THE LATE SIXTIES. HE COULD MAKE A GUITAR SOUND LIKE THE PETAL STEEL. I BELIEVED THE RUMOR UNTIL MY BROTHER DISCOVERED SOME BLOGS ON THE INTERNET THAT INDICATED THAT GENE IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL.
I SURE WOULD LOVE TO CONTACT HIM. HE WAS A WIZARD PLAYER.....ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE DEEPLY APPRECIATED..

What makes a great guitar for flatpickers?

http://hubpages.com/hub/High-End-Acoustic-Guitars-For-Flatpickers



I submitted the blog, or "hub" above over at hubpages.com, where I write about every and anything. Music, however, is one of my favorite topics. Guitars and guitar music specifically-and to further narrow it down, fine acoustic flat tops, for flatpicking. I sort of hit the basics-but there's so much more to say. I'll do a follow up sooner or… Continue

Finding key chords

This must be common knowledge, but I've not seen it posted so I thought I'd chime in. For those who are working their way up the neck, it is useful to note that once the fifth string is memorized, you can figure out any key I IV V series. For examaple, the 5th string is the root A, the 4th is D and the 6th is E, hence A D E is the I IV V family. At the third fret, the root is C, the 4th string 3rd fret is F and the 6th string 3rd fret is G, and so the key of C contains the C, F, and G chords.… Continue

"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

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
