"Makes perfect sense to me JS. On a parallel note i know a lot of woodworkers who love to find and restore vintage machinery. Eventually that is all they do and woodworking itself becomes a secondary pursuit. You are taking a good focused route. Like…"

"Hey Jon, since you'll be in Redding you have to go south to San Fran area and visit and play at Gryphon Stringed Instruments 211 Lambert Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94306. That's Frank Ford's shop...you won't want to leave."

Hey Mike thanks for the welcome.  I have just ordered a flatpicking essentials volume 1 by Tim May and hoping this will help my progress as I am brand new to flatpicking but am very anxious to learn.  Have printed of lots of scales so far and watching a lot of youtube to get tips.  Just trying to speed up my finger work for now.

 

Take care I'm sure your liking the weather alot better down in sunny California its been a depressing long.... winter up here this year, but spring is coming up you can feel it in the air only -5 today.

Thanks again,

Craig

Hi Mike. Thanks for the welcome - looks like you're the official doorman :-) I'm looking forward to getting involved in the network. I've just been working on a (slow) version of East Tennessee Blue, might post it up once I find my way around this place!

Kind regards,

Hey Mike, Thanks!

What, am I supposed to now wear a red ribbon along with my pa-JAM-a's? ;-)

thanks mike

a Collings is similar quality to my Fylde - tho the Collings are more expensive - but hey, I don't need an excuse to look at expensive guitars!!!!  Yes I did omit to say, where, its Redding - CA.   The trick for me will be finding a guitar that sounds good flatpicking/blugrass and finger picked folk.

Taxing 'em ain't enough. In acoustic only environments, they should be outlawed or required to wear mutes.
