Well, I finally got brave and tuned one of my guitars in DADGAD. I kind of like the sound. Way different way to play.

I will be there Stevie. I'll be joining Doug Young; playing fiddle on one of his tunes. (He's also on the bill.) The Grateful Dougs.

I heard that was a fabulous show, Doug. Mega-congrats. Vicki and I will be sharing a stage with Don Alder at The Russian River Brewing Co after the fest on Saturday night. Swang on by if you can. I think I owe you a beer or eight.

I'm going to chime in with a big ol brag: Wednesday night I did a show with Vicki Genfan. (What an incredible artist!) Also, David Siegler and Cullen Gray. Everybody shined! It was took place at the Sleeping Lady in Fairfax, California.

These days I have to go to a guitar show to see Stevie in person. I hope that means that things are going gangbusters in the world of fingerstyle wizardry--for all our sakes.

I would love to go but the economy makes it impossible for me...

I imagine that at least a few of us will be attending the Healdsburg Guitar Festival this weekend. Please keep an eye out for me -- if you'll pardon the imagery -- and say hello any old time. I will be demoing guitars for a couple of builders, as well as leading a workshop on developing performing skills. Come shake -and-howdy.

Hi all! I'm happy that there is a place where I can get tips and converse with fellow finger style players. My style is a mixture of Fleetwood Mack/ "Dust In The Wind", but I've been slowly learning a little "progressive" styling from watching Andy McKee and Erik Mongrain videos. What are some good books or artists that might help me out when I hit a dry spell in my writing?

Well, speaking of nails. I use a little nail. I like the sound I get with nail and finger tip. The combination is the best for me.

Hi everyone, I've not long joined on here and it's great to hear so many acoustic musicians! To add to Nadine's comment I've never felt I needed nails to play with either, I far prefer the added "feel" of using my fingertips. Onywyes, hope all's good with you all, cheersfurnoo. :)
