<span style="color:rgb(0,0,255);">Well, I play a lot of instruments.  I've played guitar - 6 and 12 string - since I was 13, so 17 yrs now. I was a street musician for yrs before I had kids. I like to play rock, classical, and country - specifically from the 20's and 30s.  I can play a mean Carter scratch!  I also play the autoharp in the appalachian style, and am still working on learning clawhammer banjo.  My birthday just passed, and my husband bought me a mandolin!  I've always wanted one, and he thought it would be easier to carry around - its so nice carrying an instrument case that small and light!  I've been having fun figuring it out.</span></p>
