In this edition of the Flatpicking Guitar Magazine Podcast Dan Miller talks with Tim May and Robert Bowlin about a new CD that they recorded in mid-April titled "Flatpick Swing."  The concept was to get a couple of great flatpicking guitar players in the studio and have them jam on some swing standards.  More and more swing tunes are showing up at flatpick jams these days and so we thought it would be awesome to record Tim and Robert jamming on a few of these tunes.  If you are a flat picker who plays some swing, I think you'll love this recording.  You'll also love it if you are a fan of great flatpicking, or good swing music.  Check out this podcast to find out what Tim and Robert have to say about it.

In this edition of the Flatpicking Guitar Magazine Podcast Dan Miller talks with our friend Bob Minner.  Many of you will know from the cover story article that we published last year about Bob that he is originally from Missouri and grew up flatpicking bluegrass music, however, for the past 19 years he has been on the road and in the studio as a member of country start Tim McGraw's band.  Even though that job keeps him very busy, Bob took time last year to record a solo CD that features his song writing and flatpicking talents.  In this podcast Dan talks with Bob about his new CD and you can also hear a cut from that record.
