Strictly a clawhammer guy now, but started on Seeger style up-picking years ago. I also have a Martin OM-15, a Martin 00028 Norman Blake and a folding Voyage Air VAOM-06 for finger picking. I have a square neck resonator guitar I am trying to figure out and when I want to make the neighbors dogs howl I practice playing my musical saw..... drives my wife nuts too! Recently purchased a Dusty Strings D10 hammer dulcimer too.
