Hey Matt,

I talked to you Sunday in Mt. Airy (we talked about scales...) It was nice to meet you! As much as I hate to miss it, I don't know if I'll make it to Lexington, as we have the Balloon Rally here in Statesville this weekend and I'm pretty keen on seeing my friend Aaron "Woody" Wood (former Blue Rags & picker extraordinaire) play a set on Saturday. FWIW, the last time we saw him, he had Artimus Pyle playing drums. Have a great time and try no to put "too much pork on just one fork".

Hey Matt! It was great to finally meet a fellow nation member in person. I love the 2 string fretless I bought from you. I'm sure it will end up in one of my videos sometime.

Hi AFKA Matt:

I saw a cigar box dulcijo in one of your photos with a group of instruments you built and wondered if you had a close-up photo of that one instrument. We have set up a dulcijo discussion area up under the new banjo discussion group "Banjo Players Unite!", and I was wanting to find some more photos I could display there. Let me know if you have any you could lend. Here is a low-res snippet of the photo/instrument I was talking about...
