Allan's not famous yet, but almost. Ha, ha!
I'll see that you get a CD. Still picking that guitar you got down here? It's a good one. I have two Martins now and Allan has one. The Taylors are gone. You learning much? You can order DVDs from Homespun. Lots of good stuff.
Washburn makes a nice guitar. I almost bought one for a second guitar at the store I got your Dad's. I went ahead and bought a used Martin D-18V at Music Folk. It's a Bluegrass monster with booming lows and ringing highs. I call it my beater. I bought a new D-18 Coustom on a wim at Morgan Music. It's #4 of only 12 made. It's a Missouri Dogwood Tribute Model. It's a flatpicking monster with a real punchy midrange. Good recording guitar. I used it ion almost all my leads on our CD. Why is your favorite guitar a Guild? Two of your favortie pickers play old Martins.(yuck, yuck) You can email Allan and I at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"Hey Craig. Thanks for the kind comment. The credit for this version should really go To Steve Kaufman who's arrangement it is. Good luck with your bluegrass studies, it's wonderful music and great fun to play. I look forward to…"
"Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of…"
