Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Just started trying to play a few years ago. I've never had a lesson therefore I'm not very good and I can't ever seem to find enough time to practice the way I need to. But I truly enjoyed listening to the music and dreaming about being able to play like that. I really enjoy trying to play and I love the smell of rosewood so I'll just keep on trying and dreaming.

thanks for the invite, Charlie. You sure have the right attitude.... enjoying the process of learning is the way to go, I'm still digging it after, what, 38 years of playing music. Yikes!

Hi Charlie,
Thanks for the friend invite. Glad to make the acquaintance of another person who's mad for this music!

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for the invitation. Keep playing ... there's a lot more to flat picking than the number of fast notes you can play, especially friendships and plain old enjoyment

Thanks Charlie,
I appreciate your complements on the FGM article ... I was pleased with it also. Take care.

Thanks, Charlie. You're lucky to live so close and smart to take advantage of the opportunity! I am saving my money and working on the songs I know. Today I played with my friend, Dolly, who plays keyboard. She videoed us on her little Kodak playing "You are my Sunshine." Her grandson, who is majoring in music in college, was curious about his grandma's musical adventures, so he had asked her to make and send a video. We hope he likes it!
