Thread Name: All-time favourite guitar lick
Subject: RE: All-time favourite guitar lick
I am NOT a guitar player, but I used to go to Winfield and hear the flat picking championships, and I have WATCHED Norman Blake (and others), and it is amazing what is done...Norman has this one song (it may BE Church Street)where he is into this pretty amazing run, and he ADDS a triplet without missing a beat!...and all the time he is making faces and interacting with the crowd....

and there was this young kid from California, Jeff Pearson, who played most of 'Black Mountain Rag' in the high register without a cutaway guitar...cant see how his hand made that reach!
