Very cool. Give us a little taste of the Beaumont Rag while you're at it.

The 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken' album , which I still have in pristine condition , was the beggining of my love for flat picking . Doc's rendition of Way Down Town was is still one of my favorites .. I bet that ole guitar could tell a few tales .... I'd probably even give up my first born for that one ..
great treasure ..

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
