I forgot to mention your right-hand finger work. I see you do not wear picks. I probably would not try that for tonal reasons, but in your case you show better dexterity than most players with picks - 3 perhaps 4 fingers at times, and walking the first and second fingers which we almost never see in those of us who use picks. Being an old nylon string finger picker, I've tried it with picks and its not easy.

Thanks guys.
David, what appears to be my index finger picking on the video is actually a flatpick being held by thumb and index finger. It's always weird watching myself on video...it makes it look like I'm doing more than I really am!

Sounds great. I just missed out on a Magnatone lap on ebay. I was inspired to buy it based on your rockin' vid Smile

Flat pick and second finger, we are going to have to call that Cunningham Style. Very Happy
