    Because this Fletcher Tenortone Tenor Guitar only arrived yesterday evening, of course I just had to post a tune to show Jamie Dougan, it's maker, that it did indeed cross the Atlantic safely! :-)

    It's just that I can't imagine fingerstyle being very practical in a session situation, that's all.
