Hey guys, I haven't been on here for a while....I have been trying to get an ulnar nerve problem cleared up so I can pick with my right hand...right now I can't even grip a pencil or squeeze a flat pick.  Anyway, I'll get better.  Check out my informal picking sessions and let me know what you think......I'm just learning but getting better the more I play.

go to fingerpicking with Larry session 1 and there are 5 total on youtube......

please don't laugh if you blow me away.....I am improving.

Have any fingerstylists checked out the Ibanez AC450CE?

The specs look interesting: 1 3/4" nut, short scale, solid cedar top...At $400, it might be a reasonable consideration for some of us financially challenged pluckers. Any experience with these?

Good job Chris. I do a lot of improv myself. That was good.

Wow! Improvising in public in an alternate tuning! I consider you a brave soul. Nice stuff there! Thanks for sharing it here, Chris.

I'm in the woods - this one is in DADEAD with a white K-lever on +3.

Thanks, Michael.  Fortunately the Fox River variety of shark appears to be more interested in bobbing than biting.

@Jake....nice job!! On the song and the video. Never knew about the sharks in the Fox River tho...ha. Seriously, I enjoyed your rendition.

Please accept my invitation to hear and see the world premiere of the first music video by Acoustic Annoyance.  My fingerstyle arrangement of Leonard Cohen's Tower of Song ...

Acoustic Annoyance ... a quest to improve

Hey fingerstylists! I just posted a new stylistically confused tune, "This & That" on my page. I'd appreciate any thoughts on the production. I think I'll lose the flutes. They're not quite in tune. Maybe replace them with synth?  Again, I'd appreciate any thoughts on the production, as my ears are getting tired!

John, Well played!
