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.

Welcome! I see you live in NJ...if you ever get to a little NJ music shop called "Nothing New Music," give them my regards! They are great people. Great videos! Anyway, here is the address to my website and to the photo/description page for my 1936 dobro guitar. If you get a chance to visit, please feel free to sign the Guestbook!

Thanks, Edward

Awesome songs, great guitar playing and singing, Toby. You are a real professional. I really enjoy listening to your music...

You are certainly welcome, Toby. I have been playing bluegrass, gospel, country, etc. for many, many years and I am surprised I haven't run into you somewhere along the line. I have a guitar student and as part of his lesson today we watched your video of Sweet Georgia Brown.

His eyes were big as saucers and his smile was even bigger! I told him to practice and some day maybe he could be playing like that. ( I didn't have the heart to tell him I had been playing for over 50 years and I couldn't play anywhere nearly that well. He was very excited and was duly inspired.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Are you familiar with much western swing music?

Toby I have really enjoyed you're videos. Every April for the last eight years I've been going to Merlefest a four day music festival located in Wilkes County NC. On Saturdays it all "Blues" host by Roy Bookbinder. They also have blues guitar work shops. Jorma Kaukonen of Fur Peace has been there and put on a great show. Looking at your schedule on your website I can see you stay busy, but you can ever find time to go to Merlefest, I guarantee you your music would be greatly appreciated. Jim

Make that "without doubt". Sorry about that.

I have been around guitar players, some average..some great, and you are without my newest most favorite guitar player and I don't hand out those kudos lightly. Toby, I love your SGB rendition and admire your innovative chording and picking techniques. Keep on picking buddy.

Hey Toby,
Great to see you here as well. The videos you posted are awesome. I remember when you made the arrangement of Sweet Georgia Brown many years ago and you'd play it for the rest of us at the store - all our jaws dropped. Sounds as sweet as ever! Keep on pickin'! Hope to see you soon.
Best,
Mike

The Double Door Inn and The Evening Muse here in Charlotte would be glad to have you visit I'm sure. Those are the main two off the top of my head, there's plenty others, just can't think of them right now. Hope to see you there one day.
Have a great day!

I've got $0.00 in my travel budget this year so far, so you've got to get yourself scheduled to play down here in NC sometime soon!

Oh yeah! Turner's wife was a great cook!

Man, those were some fine days....-Sigh-...

Your experience with Turner sounds like his MO, alright. Did you get to taste any of his moonshine? He made some pretty decent liquor (well, it wouldn't kill ya). We got into some almost every time I was with him. Dang, I miss him.

I haven´t yet "discovered" Your music, but I love the old tractor on Your new CD! :)
