Hi Jerry, just looked at your web site Buddy, for the first time in over a year. Great stuff and with the current software available I am downloading a video or two to share with friends both down here in NC and in upstate NY where we're headed for a visit in two days. Bought you Mandolin album download last year. Great stuff.

Greetings from Colorado.
I got your CD from a touring bluegrass vocalist KC. She lives in Lyons, CO where the BEST jam is held each and every Tuesday 8-11.
PLEASE, transcribe all your originals and publish a sheet and tab book. ASAP!!!
So many of your songs I want to learn and be able to play tight with groups.
As I see it, By publishing your originals asap you will be sharing the joy, passion and creativity of your music.

Hi Buddy, You camped next to us at GreyFox. It was nice to meet you & Kathy & Jerry. Love the cd I purchased from you, listened to it all the way home. Was happy to help you set up tarps as the thunder storms rolled through. Peace and hopefully our paths will cross again.

After gettin your new CD, I walked out to the car and inserted it in the stereo. I was immediately loving it. This may well be your best yet. Everyone I talk to praises it.
This morning, as I sat catching up with my BUs that pile up, I read the write up that they gave this CD. Far out Buddy......congratulations. It's mighty fine.

Saw you last night at the Joe Val Festival. Really appreciated the dual mandolins. That was fantastic; great, great music. Wish I'd had time to come out and give you a "shake and a howdy" but couldn't tear myself away from the rest of the music. Thanks for coming out to Framingham!

When great players get together with great students, the students sometimes walk away great themselves with any luck and a whole lot of dedication. Greatness is here in Buddy Merriams original scores in Back Roads Mandolin. A new American Classic. Bill would be proud.
