I know many of you who follow me already know this but I am so happy to announce that two weeks ago I won the 2015 International Fingerstyle Guitar Competition at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, KS.  The competition level was very high this year with the Japanese Champion being there, the Taiwan Champion, the Canadian Guitar Festival winner, and three or four past winners of the International competition.  Of course many other great players that I know came too.  As each of these players walked in I couldn't help but feel a bit intimidated and I would start to get competitive in my mind.  After all, I was a cross country runner.  I've explained how these competitions work before so I won't get into that.  Instead I want to share a bit about the other finalists, the generous people and companies who provided the great prizes, and the people who have helped me get here.
