Pete, I suppose you hear this all the time, but...I've been struggling to teach myself guitar for a bit less than two years now. Spent time with several DVD's and tapes and learned the basics. One day I ran across your John Denver instructional DVD number one...I think I have gotten more out of that one DVD in the last month than nearly all the rest combined. Your teaching method of step by step on the harder licks is the best. I've ordered several more of your DVD's?my wife thinks I?m nuts. I started playing guitar and guitar on my 65th birthday and before the first year was out I was able to play bass with a small bluegrass band, and during the next year I taught myself enough mandolin to get by as well, but the guitar was still challenging me; thanks to your DVD I think I'm finally playing something that actually sounds pretty darned good. I will be at it a full 2 years the end of February 07. By the way, for any other old farts out there, it?s never too late to get into some serous pickin? and strummin? if you will work at it. R.

Pete, Happy New Year!! Saw you at the JD Tribute (both shows) in Aspen back in October. The orchestra really added a lot. Top notch!! Got any tips for that Bm7 chord in McGuire's Landing. I got your Solo II DVD as a gift and that's the only problem I've run into. It's a toughie!! Thanks, Paul

Hi Pete, I recently stumbled across your music on ITUNES and have been listening to your CDs non stop since donwloading from there. I've been stuck in a musical rut with the guitar for awhile and your playing is certainly an inspiration. Since you did spend some time in the Boston area, albeit a while ago, I was wondering if you might know of any good fingerstyle guitar teachers in the Boston area that you'd recommend ?? I've been looking for awhile but haven't been able to find anyone. Keep up the great work, would love to see you perform in Boston some time. thanks

Dear Pete; I wanted to write and tell you how much I love the DVD of Jim Croce's Music. Jim & Maury were quite a pair . Many people never knew the musical genius of each of them ! Maury was not only one of the most talented people to ever pick up the guitar but, he was also a fabulous piano player too. I hope to get the John Denver DVD's next . Maybe someday I'll be able to play 1/1000th as good as you . I wish you and your family a Happy,Safe and most Blessed New Year. God Bless- Thom Miller

Hi Pete. I stumbled across you playing Superstition last month on You Tube, and rushed right out and purchased both of your Instructional DVDs. I am just finishing up on Josie. Except for that darn chickin' pickin thing! It's taking some time to get that part. What a wonderful arrangement. I was wondering if you had any plans to produce an instructional video with Superstition on it. I see there is a book with the transcription. I will order that tonight. It would be great to have a quality video of you playing it. Also, do you have any plans to join up with Tommy again at some point in the future? He's doing TommyFest in Elizabethtown in a month. Why don't you swing by? You guys should do a workshop together. Man, that would be the ultimate musical experience. Love your arrangement of 'Tis So Sweet... Merry Christmas! Gene

Hi Pete, Hope all is well. I was listening to John Denver's "Christmas in Concert" (Washington, D.C.) CD today, and was thinking how exciting and fun it must have been for you to be playing in that show, with the orchestra and children's chorus. Did you play any of the music that sounds like electric guitar or did you stick with acoustic? Did you play in many other Christmas shows with John? Anyway, I am very much looking forward to your new CD; can't wait to hear it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and Erin. Best wishes, David

Ceburn - The main guitar I play a Collings OM1 Cutaway. Mahogany back and side with a Sitka Spruce top. The other one I play has an Adirnondak Spruce top (also called Red Spruce if the wood is not grown in the Adirondaks). They both have nut widths of 1 3/4". While you are at it, get some Elixir Phosphor Bronze strings. That way you won't be changing strings all the time. ;-) Pete

Hi Pete, I have noticed on all of your DVD's that you play with two different type Collings. I believe you said that the OM-1 was your favorite for everyday playing. I want to purchase the OM-1 Cutaway from Collings and I want to order the same exact one with which you play most in your DVD's. I think you said the top was Sitka, but I know some where that you mentioned Englemann. Could you please give me the specs so I will know exactly what to order. I want to get it right since it is hefty purchase! Thanks. I own all of your DVD's. What else can I say, you are terrific....

Hi Pete, For a New Years resolution, I decided to begin playing a musical instrument. I couldn't decide on the piano or guitar, so I bought a $80 casio piano and a second hand guitar for $125.(an acoustic Alvarez). I began both instruments with the beginning of the new year figuring I would decide which one I would persue full force... the guitar won! I have more books on guitar...and piano where I can honestly say " I have every book I need to learn how to play guitar...and the piano. As I scrolled through homespun's catalog, your CD caught my eye. When it finally arrived, as with all the other cd's I order, the first thing I did was play the lesson WITHOUT the instrument. I can't believe ALL the extremely useful information that you formatted on one single disk!!! GREAT STUFF!!! Cutting it short, my first order of business for the new year is to reward myself for sticking with my resolution by purchasing another guitar. I couldn't decide on an electric, 12 string, or another acoustic maybe? Your cd answered my question. My next guitar that I will be buying will be a classic guitar with nylon strings with the fret board being 2". I will keep in contact with you, that is, if you don't mind? That's all for now... back to practice....and thanks!

Hi Pete, I couldn't resist commenting about the Classical Gas comment. It struck me as a little humorous as written - "a song called Classical Gas." :) Anyway, The original arrangement by Mason Williams is outstanding... and sounds as good today as it did years ago. And as you and many of your fans know, Tommy Emmanuel has a cool arrangement as well. Both arrangements are available all over the Web or they can be purchased. Wishes for a happy Thanksgiving. Keep up the great playing!!!

Anyway, although you may already know about this, I thought that you and other fans of Jim Croce and Maury Muehleisen might like to know that Maury's sister Mary got the rights to republish Maury's CD "Gingerbreadd" (previously only available in Japan), and it is now available on her website (maurymuehleisen.com). Mary also has published another CD of several of Maury's unpublished works.

I was wondering if you plan to make a Learning JD songs for guitar DVD #4, and if so, if you might be able to include some songs for us teachers so we can use them to enrich learning (perhaps Windsong, Sing Australia [older students], or Amazon). I have all three previous versions of your DVDs, and I found them ideal for learning John's songs!

Hi Pete. I just wanted to let that I recently purchased your DVD 'Essential Exercises for the Fingerstyle Guitar, and I am very impressed with the work and material you presented. When I called Homespun Tapes, I asked them for help with right hand bass techniques, and after some discussion about my level of profiency and what I hoped to accomplish, this DVD was recommended. EUREKA! All the exercises and work are easily transferred to the bass, (I play a 5 string Benavente Vintage Vortex). There sure is a lot of meat on that bone, in the first 5 minutes you cover material that may take me a year to master. I really feel like that DVD is allowing me to make the next quantum leap in developing right hand technique. Thanks for the help, and congrats on such an excellent lesson. You are right, life is good. Keep up the good work! Also, I gave you a cheap plug on www.Talkbass.com, a bass friendly forum I hang on, and recommended the DVD to some other players for their benefit. Best regards, Thor

I saw Eric Clapton in concert last night. All I could think was that I would rather be watching Pete (Even better since he was working with LeAnn Rimes last night). Of course everyone on the Clapton stage oozed talent, and the music was flawless, but they were not entertainers. It was just a bunch of men standing on a stage playing their instruments. Pete is an entertainer and teacher. He works the room, says "hi" to people he knows, tells great stories of the road, and teases us by letting us think for just a moment that we could be as good as he is. Love your work Pete!

Dear Pete, Hello the the greatest folk/county/pop guitarist in the world: well pretty close to the best anyway. Are you still planning on being in Aspen for the John Denver events in October? I think I MIGHT be able to attend but wanted to make sure you would be there. Also, if you EVER give another workshop/concert etc. anywhere in Kentucky, or within 500 miles of Indianapolis (where I live) PLEASE let me know. YOU are WELL WORTH the drive. Hope all is well in your life, and keep making that great music. You carry along with your great talent the wonderful musical traditions of so many fine musicians, a tradition which I fear may start to die out sometime in the future (I HOPE I'M wrong). From one of your great admirers (I saw you at the John Denver memorial tribute concert outside Washington, D.C. just months after John's terrible accident). Thanks for helping to carry on his music, and you do SO MUCH MORE !!! Bob Jackson

Hey Pete.... I played guitar in the opposite country show one summer with you at Busch gardens (you were playing with Dave Grantham) back in the early 80s. I knew you were going to be a world-class guitarist even then based on how much talent you already had and your work ethic. I'm glad to see (and hear) that you're doing so well. Quick John Denver story... I was playing in an east coast area pop band back in the late 80s and we were in Erie Pa. John was doing concerts in the area and had made the hotel we were at his home base. He came into the bar and I was able to speak with him two or three nights in a row during my breaks. He was very easy to talk with and we had fun. I'm out of music now, but again I'm really glad to see you're doing so well. Keep playing. Thanks, Ken Gorman

By golly my wife Julie and I had a fine time last Friday night at Steve's Guitars. Your spirit in generosity with your music is inspiring. Your personable presentation and stories add a wonderful dimension to your own writing and arrangements. I am a neophyte guitar player, just about at my second year. I am working with your Guitarist's Guide To Better Practicing; Very, very helpful tutelage. I like in some tunes the way you let the strings sing for quite awhile, let them do their work, and then play over their decaying tone to harmonize with the passing sound figures. Then in other places you dampen 1-2 bass grooves and runs...nice work. I had asked you about the Chet Atkins style number you went out with on the above mentioned CD, you said that you would send that my way in PDF format, no need I just bought the 'Pete Huttlinger Collection' this evening. I will leave you with one question, have you ever played with David Grier???? That would be fret-board fire!
Thanks for the good time and I will see you at Jorma's.

Hi All, For the benefit of those who read previous message I should make it clear that I was joking when I said Pete couldn't keep up with me singing "Rock Island Line." Those of you who have heard Pete will know that he is world renowned for his fast finger picking action, nevertheless I suspect the way I sing, i.e. mainly out of key/tune and basically tone deaf he would struggle to keep up with me. Incidentally did/has anyone heard the celebrity version of "Rock Island Line? I think Eric Clapton and Ringo not to mention others were on it. In fact have any of you Americans heard it at all? I call it the speedy "Drunks Lament" All the best, Dave Wheatley

Pete, just received your "Essential Exercises for Fingerstyle Guitar." I have been a flat picker but have gotten to the point where all the guitar music I listen to and the instructional DVD's available for it are fingerstyle. Here is hoping I can make the transition. I am not a "young pup" anymore as they say. Anyway, the straight ahead approach of yours and the method to the exercises to train the link between the right hand and the brain is just what I was hoping for. I appreciate the method, the logic and your emphasis on the reasoning behind the excecises. Keep up the good work. Now about the 24" rainbow I had 40% into the net before he flicked his head and snapped my leader and left me with trembling legs in fast water on the Green River in Utah.....

Hello Pete, I performed at a local pre-4th of July block party this weekend. It was a chance to test out my Bose PA system in an outdoor setting and play some new tunes I learned from you. Apart from some songs by James Taylor and David Wilcox, I included three Croce tunes I learned directly from your Croce DVD. Operator, New York's Not My Home, and Time In A Bottle went over really well. I just wanted you to know that your material is being learned, rehearsed, performed, and appreciated by people out in the real world. Thanks Pete! Secondly, apart from JT and Croce, what six popular songs from the seventies singer/songwriter genre would you consider mandatory to include in a set from that era?? Glen

A couple of people were getting upset that I wasn't getting to their questions quickly enough and were posting their unhappiness on my web site.

In case Pete don't get a chance to tell us (still recouping from his recent worldly travels).......I just got word today that Pete's Feb. 10th concert in Little Rock AR. @ Acoustic Sounds Cafe will be re-broadcast this Sat. evening (May 6)from 8-9 p.m. The station is KUAR FM 89. Just go to the homepage and in the upper left hand corner click on "Listen Live" and the broadcast should come in bright and clear. My wife and I made the trip all the way from Texas to see Pete at this performance and trust me....you will not want to miss it. This is not him just doing one song (with some guy???) like the recent XM Loft Radio Show but this is Pete and all Pete. (He does share the stage with an artist by the name of Janet Feld....but Pete will be the feature billing) It will be worth staying home on a Sat. evening to enjoy. He plays a lot of his standard tunes but adds some new material as well (perhaps a cut or two from his upcoming new CD!) Pleae check the website out prior to the show Sat. evening to iron out any kinks that could arise. I might add that the 8-9 p.m. time is CDT. You can also visit Acoustic Sounds Cafe website and click on Radio Shows to get the schedule. Just did not want all his true fans to miss out on this great opportunity. Thanks

Good afternoon Pete! I am "Dillen's Mom". We met you at Fur Peace last year and were thoroughly impressed!! Thank you so much for challenging Dillen and making him smile! You said that if we were ever in Nashville to look you up. I'm sorry for us that you are scheduled to be out of the country that weekend in July. I was hoping at least to buy you dinner. :-) Dillen has been invited to open for friends of ours at the Flying Saucer that weekend. Lucky for me, Dillen will need me around to get into a bar for the next eight years... If you are able to find a minute or two from your extreme schedule, any hints or advice for the weekend would be so greatly appreciated!!! Thanks again for helping Dillen gain the confidence to play in front of people!! He actually started playing publicly for the first time the week he came home from Fur Peace and played out all summer. I can never repay you for something so valuable or show you how grateful we are!!! Keep up the amazing work you do and have a wonderful day!!!!!

Hello, Last night in New York City, Pete played the TRIAD club on the west side of Manhattan. He was asked to do a favor for his friend Jon Pousette-Dart, who was also playing there. Pete captivated the audience. He told jokes, engaged the crowd, and amazed the people with his outstanding talent. The only shortcoming was that it was over all too soon. The venue was like being in ones living room and having such a quaint setting. If he ever has the chance to come back to New York, do whatever you can to get here and see him. It was a trememdous treat for me, one that i will remember for a long long time. Thanks for a great evening Pete. jan sheldon

Until we can talk you into more JD DVDs (we're willing to take up a collection), I have purchased your Jim Croce DVD along with your practice and solo DVDs, which I'm sure will be just as great as the JD ones.

I'm a teenaged aspiring guitar player, and I would just like to thank you, Mr. Huttlinger. What first got me hooked on folk music was John Denver, and specifically, the Wildlife Concert, which you were of course a part of, and since that time nearly two years ago, my life has truly changed for the better. The way in which you and Mr. Nole continued John's legacy after his passing is truly inspiring. While I've only been playing guitar for about six months, you've inspired me to also pick up the Harmonica (though right now my ability is limited to 'Oh Susanna'!), and hopefully learn the Dobro eventually. Folk music has taught me more about the world than I could have ever learned otherwise. Thank you for being a part of it.

Hi Pete, Happy New Year. I just received the Jim Croce DVD too, and it is great. I think that you do a wonderful service for us amateurs who just like to play good, favorite songs by putting together such a DVD. It is very instructive about Croce's technique, and the comments about the melodic aspects and picking patterns are very useful. Thanks again for doing it--I can't wait to see your 2nd "arrangements" DVD too. I too will also second the call for your updated 2006 schedule--I will be seeing you again as an attendee at Mark Hanson's summer seminar (I can't wait!), but I'd also like to make sure I attend if you are performing somewhere close to here. One other request--the guitar solo that is part of Flowers of Edinburgh (on Appalachian Picking Society) and Scottish Love Song (The Need) is just great. Could you sometime develop a Tab for the solo, and post it or publish it somewhere? Anyway, I look forward to seeing and listening to you more this year. Best wishes, David

Pete, I just recieved the Jim Croce DVD and I am excited to get started. The quality and content are excellent. I will get your next release as well but what I really want to know is "are you working anywhere in 2006"? Your concerts are not to be missed but I need to know where to go. Thanks and keep making music, Ron

Titus: The TAB/music for Get A Klugh can be found on the disc that came with FingerStyle Guitar magazine. They've started puttling lots of tabs on the disc so they can get more music in per issue. Pete

Pete, where can I find the tab/notes titled "get a klugh". I bought a fingerstyle magazine (issue # 59) that includes cd on it, and heard your piece of music there (Get a Klugh), and loved it. I want to play that piece of music, but I don't know if it's in one of your song books.

Pete, Flippin' channels tonight and caught you on the PBS John Denver special. It brought back such good memories of Winfield in 2002. I attended your pre-festival workshop and remember you playing that burnin' piece of yours, "Brown Bomber" I think it's called. Awesome. Glad to see you're still doing what you enjoy.

Hey Pete, just want to add my appreciation for the John Denver instructional videos and for the new Jim Croce material. I have one special request--could you do an instructional video for the 12 string guitar (especially JD's work on the 12). In you videos you teach on the 6 string (i.e. Annie's Song) and I understand that there are fewer 12 strings out here, but those of us with 12s would like to have your expertise to help us work out some kinks. Thanks again and I look forward to getting my copy of the Jim Croce lessons.
