I know there are more than a few here at AtBC that fondle the guitar with much delight. I don't know how many are acoustic finger pickers.

I am...and I just learned of the recent passing of one of my main idols.

The world has lost a guitar genius without parallel.

I was privileged enough to attend a guitar camp he headlined, spending 2 2-hour private sessions learning from him. Oh...and share a bottle of "fantastic" Glenmorangie Highland over dinner after meeting back up with him at Denver concert years later.

John Renbourn - NY Times

John Renbourn - The Gaurdian

John and Bert were the guitarists I wanted to be. I would also thank them for introducing me to the music of Mingus and Monk.
