Subject: RE: Really Good, Unknown Guitarists
A fellow named George Austin. He lives in Kirkland, on the east side of Lake Washington, across from Seattle. He fingerpicks mostly. He uses a number of different tunings and he does some really outrageous stuff; not necessarily blazingly fast, just nice, clean, intricate, and melodically catchy. Flows right along. I've heard a lot of pros who don't play anywhere near as well as he does. He sings well, too. We've tried to talk him into doing a CD, but no luck yet.
