Good Picking at Vandalia Gathering

Larry's guitar student, Jake Ryder, placed first in the Flatpick Guitar "Youth" category at the 2007 Vandalia Gathering yesterday. His mom, Mrs. A over at Country Life, filmed the performance and put it on Youtube. Jake's in the eighth grade, and he's a mighty fine picker, in my opinion. Here he is playing "Beaumont Rag" (first video) and "Whiskey Before Breakfast" (second video).

Oh, and just in case you're wondering, that's Larry S. Combs playing backup for Jake. Did I mention Larry gives guitar lessons?
