Hi Mark, I am really liking the yardsale archtop I picked up. I got a Ranger Doug book on Freddie Green style big band rythym and I'm learning all those jazz chords. I'm having a blast. So much so in fact that I am now on the lookout for an old Gibby L-50 or L-48. With my D-18 for flatpicking, the big blonde Guild G-37 for rocking, if I can score an old 'burst Gibby L-50 for swinging I'll be all set :)

Mark, I play the guitar evey day. mainly cuz it is so fun to play. When I pick up the D-18, it sounds like a symphony compared to the Harmony. . The Harmony is so focused on those mids. It is a cool sounding guitar with those jazz chords. In comparison, the Martin actually sounds too full for the swing chords. I got a replacement pickguard for it. I really had a hard time choking up the money for it because the pickguard literally cost twice what I paid for the guitar :) I'm glad I got it though because it really adds to the vibe.

hey Mark, I posted some pics on my page. There are a couple just like it on ebay right now. Just search Harmony Patrician. Mine is identical to the 60's era because of the white cover on the adjustable truss rod.

I Love it up on the Summit. On a clear day it is one of the most spectacular views. I envy those weather men stationed up there. When they are snowed in, must make for some good pickin time if they are so inclined.

Hello Mark,
did you record Arkansas Traveller at home?
Not bad, really not bad.

Hey Mark, what model of bourgeois is the one in your picture?

Mark, which Bourgeois guitar is that in your avatar? Wow, what a pretty guitar!

Thanks for the invite Mark.
Yes, Gary & Tom both seemed to enjoy playing my Moon. This was a first for me - listening to other folk playing my guitar! Of course it was amazing to hear two such good players doing so. I'm sure they've helped open her up massively!
Will you be joining us at Kamp next year? I must sort out which week I'm going soon so as to use my air miles. I'm hoping all the lefty fret crew will dorm together....

Hey Mark,
I responded to your post on the AF forum...kind of lonely over there.
Yeah, Swallowtail Jig was with the Kelley. It is a great mando. You steered me right there my friend!
Things are good in New England. Plenty of pickin' and, for the time being, fall colors.
Say hi to Skip.

Thanks for inviting me, Mark! Sure I remember.
I have been a bit "quiet" lately - time is short.

Hey Mark,

I'm glad to hear that someone has been the beneficiary of Collier's foray's into cool guitars! The Burkett J-35 is a beauty!

Hey Mark thanks for the invite...

Mark, Nice take on Sally Anne!

That's the kind of stuff I was doing back in the early 90s when I made those recordings. It ain't Doc Watson is it! I'm still very active in fingerstyle, but have been obssessed with flatpicking these last 5 years or so. Next week is Kamp week1! I'll be there!

Hi Mark!

1st the confession....I am not a lefty it was a flook when I made the video!! I guess I somehow mirrored it or something then saved it and was unable to change it back YIKES! SO I uploaded it anyway just to have something on my page for some feedback....I added you as a friend cause you can never have to many ... I just love both the songs on your page and also enjoyed the 2 songs you have on your "myspace" page as well! I am very new to flatpicking ....but like everyone else that happens down this road have become addicted to playing and can't get enough of it!! I am about 3 or 4 months into learning the Mandolin as well.....thats what got me hooked! Looking forward to hearing more of your songs....and thanks for the nice comment!

Clear Skies!

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the friendship and the comment on "Will You Miss Me".
I met George Shuffler in 1987 and had the pleasure of picking several tunes with him in his living room in Valdese, NC, I have always been a fan of his and he made us feel at home, signed one of my guitars that day too. You're right, he really is a nice guy!

Talk to you later,
