 I tried to repy to your email but I couldn't get it to send, not sure why it wouldn't  send, so I replied on your wall.


Thanks for uploading the music!  I just found the tab for them at http://www.bluegrassguitar.com/leadtabs.html.  Your recordings sound great!   I am just starting and have memorized Blackberry Blossom.  I cannot go very fast at all with it, and I think its because I cannot alternate my picking correctly.  Just curious, do you use finger picks?  

MY Reply.
 I only use flatpicks (Wegen 1.4mm). One thing to remember is to use only downstrokes for the quater notes and upstrokes for the eighth notes (you may know that already). Once I figured that out it was alot easier.  Check out this lesson from Mickey Abraham it may help out. http://flatpick.com/lessons/july2008.html

let me know how that works out.

"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. "
