    Welcome to the Cafe, if you’re interested in Monroe-style playing there are lots of threads about Chris Henry’s Monroe style curriculum he’s been doing for several years now. A great resource for learning Monroe style playing, here’s the link to his website.

    I have no idea why the "New Gal" posted on the same day, actually a few hours LATER than you, had nearly twice the responses...

    It's a good bunch here, but it can get expensive.
