Favorite Flatpickers
Clarence White, Tony Rice, Steve Kaufman, Banjo Ben, Jim Nunnally, Brad Davis, Dix Bruce, and Dan Crary
Favorite Flatpicking Tunes
I like any tune that I can remember, but especially prefer ones that go outside of the 1/4/5 world. Ok, maybe just throw in a 7th chord and I'll be satisfied.
Favorite Guitars
I have a great Breedlove American D/SM that I love, but when I die and go to heaven I want a R. Taylor Style 3 Cherry Sunburst.
Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I have been playing guitar since about 1978 or 9. I only just got into this style and had no idea that people were still into it! That makes this even more fun. I have a band and we play a ton of charity events in our community which has been really fun, and life giving. Playing for people in jails, rehab homes, hospitals, etc has been a great time and a huge blessing for me (and I hope for them too!)

Hey Mark!

These contests pit guitar players against mando players and banjo players. I won the California State Open Picking Championships four times total, the last three being consecutivley 2007, 2008, and 2009. They only let you win three times in a row and then you have to sit out a year. I have won the Western Open three times now although last year I took second to an incredible mando player out of southern California. It would be great to meet you.

I have been uploading some videos to youtube (search under: jr3316). If I get the time I'll try isolating some of my contest videos for you. Although I have never competed there, Tehachapi CA has a contest called something like, Fiddling Down the Tracks that occurs about the same time as the Weaverville contest. It is a larger contest than Weaverville.
