"Peter,
Just had to drop you a line and tell you I think "How To Play Carter Style Guitar" is fantastic! It's exactly what I've been looking for. I started playing guitar 3 years ago and have been looking for some instruction on Carter style but never anything that worked (for me, anyway). I'm now ordering a second copy for my guitar teacher who loves it!    Thanks again."

"Peter,
I just received the Carter picking book in the mail today. It is absolutely fantastic. I knew most of the basics before but I could never put them together and arrange them into a song they way I hear other people do. I have been taking lessons for two years and I could never get my teacher to show me about the things that are in this book. I have already mastered worried man blues after a half hour. Hopefully, I will be able to sing while playing this style after awhile. I feel like I have have jumped to a new level of playing in just one day. Not bad considering I paid $30 an hour for lessons and wasn't getting anywhere after I learned the chords, scales and other basics. So much for music theory, if you are unable to apply it. I am so glad that I stumbled onto Carter picking and your web site.
Thanks a million!"

"My goal is to be able to play from memory which will take some time and your contribution has made that possible. My sincere appreciation goes to you for helping me play Carter Music, especially You Are My Flower, which is my favorite song. You have made me very happy,
