Nashville road trip and new header images

Marty LanhamJohn and I have been on a little road trip this week. The business of bluegrass brought us down out of the mountains of Southwest Virginia to visit Music City USA. We’ve been in Nashville since Monday afternoon, and have had a great time visiting with friends and associates in the bluegrass industry.

We spent a great deal of time at the Nashville Guitar Company shop in North Nashville, with luthier Marty Lanham. In addition to being a great guitar builder, Marty is also one of the friendliest people you’ll meet in this business. We had a great time talking shop with him and learning all about guitar construction and maintainance (hint: keep an eye out for a forthcoming DVD release).

Marty was kind enough to let me snap a few pictures around his shop. I’ve sorted through a few of them already and you should start seeing them show up in the header image rotation. A couple of them may be difficult to identify, so have fun.
