Hello from Kentucky.  I'm Allen,  I'm a long time player but new to bluegrass. I've always loved it but this is my first time diving into playing beyond basic bluegrass rythym. I've been learning licks and a couple of songs that I'm up to 200 bpm on. 

  I've checked out other online lessons but this one appears anyways to have the kind of licks I want to learn and play.. I'm excited to dive in and learn.

Hi Allen and everyone else as well....

I'm from western Ky. also and just joined here myself. I've been playing a couple of years and I'm looking forward to getting into Devin's courses. Looking for something more structured than just being all over the place as is so easy to do with youtube these days! Happy playing to ya 😀 

Mark

I'm in Paducah. It would be a little bit of a drive but would be great to maybe get together sometime. I was in Owensboro back before Christmas to see Tommy Emmanuel at the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. Me and the wife were front and center, second row. What a great show!!!

@markd85 I just came home to CT after working for 4 months in KY, with the last 6 weeks staying in Paducah, working for FEMA.  Did you see the Ricky Skaggs and Stephen Curtis Chapman concert in February?

Oh wow....we could have got together 😔 Funny you should ask about the RS and SCC concert...The answer is no. I debated going but wound up not. I wish I would have. I was taking lessons with Stephen's Dad, Herb, at the time and he also performed that night. I believe Herb is 83 years old! He's still great!!!

@markd85 It was a great show. I bought a Breedlove 12 string at Allen's. They shipped it yesterday.

I'm sure it was an awesome show. And the Breedlove...very nice indeed. I 've bought only one guitar from Allen's but I go in there alot. Brandon is the owner and a guy named Cord does the setups. I think there a first class operation. Family owned business of course. Nice people. You shouldn't have any problems at all.

@markd85 I had actually bought an electric there a few weeks earlier but had to return it for defects. I bought the Breedlove with the store credit.
