nice to see you here! (you gave me a private lesson at kamp in that little lounge in thaw hall. i had the mac with the irritating metronome clicking on my recording program.) your tips and thoughts on crosspicking have come in quite handy. i gave myself a project over the summer: 1) go through the bluegrass album band volumes i own, 2) pick out songs that i think lend themselves to guitar breaks well, and 3) make three different solos to each one, including a crosspicking break where i think it feels right. it's been a lot of fun!
I am so impressed with the upcoming talent in our music, and Paige is making such a great statement with her contributions and her family. I loved your class at Kamp. Thanks for being so sociable and hanging out for a while with us at Mike's, especially when our small degree of finess faded away. You are a good sport and a great teacher.
Hi Kathy, Yeah that tenor is a nice one. I've built 3 tenor guitars now and I think it is an under rated instrument. Tamara has used it well as a song writer's tool. I just finished a baritone uke for Ingrid Herman's son Tom Littlefield - he uses it for his song writing. Good to hear from you.
My festival is held at the Peaceful Bend Vineyard in Steelville , MO.
It is a lovely place.. almost 80 acres on the Upper Meramec River.
Katie and Clyde are good friends and partners in this endeavour.
We hold shows in the wine cellar, and if attendance warrants we have a stage setup in the Wine Garden as well.
The fact that Clyde makes really good wine is an added plus!
I JUST MOVED TO ANTELOPE CALIFORNIA AND I SAW YOUR PROFILE ON THE INSTRUCTORS PAGE AND THOUGHT I WOULD SAY HI! I LISTENED TO YOUR RECORDINGS AND REALLY ENJOYED THEM.

"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…"
