hey tim i enjoyed listening to you guys at the folk alliance this year. i appreciate you hangin and listening to my daughter and i at the fgm room and extending such a warm welcome to us. thanks, ed carr
You are such a talented player.I've bought your first? cd "Find my way Back"when it came out,the playing was very fine(that Bill Cheatam version was killer btw),but somehow i've always felt that the final sound of the cd was too digital.I couldn't hear the classic D-21 Martin sound.
Was it engineer's idea? Sorry about that,but i had to mention that.
Thanks for the befriending. I enjoy the eclectic nature of your interests; from the flat-out flatpicking, to the lovely vocal arrangements, to the celtic explorations, to the conversions of rock icons to bluegrass showpieces. Keep up the great work.
Wow, you have earned your music notice. What a great bio. I am am not a flatpicker, but a wanna be. I am in the process of CD finishing so will be more active here when I am done this month.
I am also re doing my web site this week, so will keep all posterd. Take care, WELCOME!
Thanks for offering the hand of friendship, Tim. Love your mp3 files - never heard a bluegrass version of Limehouse Blues before. It sounds great, and great fun.
Here is my mp3 website, should you have the time to pop by:

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
