We love you and will miss you, Doc!  Has anyone ever matched his musical taste and melodic sense?  For all his amazing virtuosity, he never played to show off hot licks, everything was in service of the song.  Dan, how about a special memorial issue of the magazine devoted to Doc, with stories from various flatpickers about his importance to them, and studies of some of his renditions of tunes?  Without Doc, would there even be flatpicking as we know it?

Saw him for the first time at the Recent Merlfest! When did he pass? God Bless!
