I just got home from a little gig recon trip to Wichita!
I can't hang out with all those pickers that come to town in September and not have to get out there and give it the old college try!
We'll keep a light in the window for you!
Hey man ya this is a pretty cool thing you made here. As far as suggestions. Let's see what about a one stop contest and festival directory but more specifically contests. And maybe a builder database and or a classifieds section.
And thank you dan for doing so much for flatpicking music for somany people. I bet you don't hear that appreciation enough. Your magaizine is really a quality product. I've learned a lot of tunes and others from it over the years.
We are just back from Japan where we played for our troops at a festival. It was a great trip and we are looking at several other international concerts for the fall.
It has been busy this "off season" We have played from California to New York. We are pretty lucky.
I like the new site, thanks for all the work you continue to do on our behalf.
I hope you can come to Durango this summer, take care

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…"
