Hi, toby!

You know, I really enjoy American-style fingerpicking, and you've done a very nice job. My sincere congratulations! And thank you for sharing that. I spent three very stimulating minutes watching your video, thank you!

Just in case you have three minutes to spend on a very different thing...


Here in Lisbon, we have a traditional March contest. This one won the 1955 contest and the title of Grande Marcha de Lisboa (Great Lisbon March) of 1955. I'm playing it in one of the Portuguese guitars I made, and I'm backed by Martin dreadnough and a Fender Bass. Click on the link and... have fun!  Thatnks for your video!

Actualy I don't have a store there, I purchased a guitar from the Jersey store displaying at the Philly Vintage Guitar show. I live in Maryland near Baltimore. We haven't been to the Philly show in a few years now, so it's time this summer! Edward

I see you live in Denville, NJ.

I now live in York, PA but up until 3 years ago, I lived in NJ. I grew up in Robbinsville and lived in Trenton and then Yardville before moving out here.
