In this podcast we are going to try something a little different. As you may know, in all of our previous podcasts, we've interviewed flatpicking guitar players and then provided one tune from our interview subject. We're not going to be interviewing anyone this time, we are just going to play you a bunch of music that has come into our office recently so that you sit back and enjoy some fine flatpicking music. All of the artists who I'll be featuring in this podcasts have been highlighted in flatpicking guitar magazine over the years. If you hear someone that you like in particular, please check out the issue in which they were featured at www.flatpickingmerantile.com
