Welcome to Flatpicking Guitar Magazine Volume 20, Number 4 (May/June 2016). In this issue we feature one of the modern legends of flatpicking, Kenny Smith, on the cover. Also featured in this issue is one of our favorite flat pickers, Peter McLaughlin from Tucson, Arizona. Peter was featured in our very first issue nearly twenty years ago and he was on the cover of our January/February 2004 issue. Additionally we feature a young flatpicker from Connecticut, Korey Brodsky and our Italian flatpicking friend Roberto Dalla Vecchia has also sent in a great solo flatpicking waltz. And all our regular columnists have sent in a bunch of great tunes for you to work with in this issue. We hope you enjoy this issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.
