Welcome to the Harvey Reid Blog page...

Modern troubadour and guitar explorer Harvey Reid is posting many new writings here beginning in Nov. 2016. He has performed and taught guitar since 1974, was a former national Fingerpicking Guitar Champion, and has released 32 highly-acclaimed solo recordings of original, traditional, and contemporary acoustic music. He now lives in Southern Maine and is performing regularly and continuing work on a very ambitious series of stringed instrument educational books available from Amazon.com, other online retailers and from this web site.

Some older articles, essays and writings can be found at this page. A couple of the most popular ones from the past have been re-listed here at the bottom. He also has posted some essays on learning guitar on the Song Train web site.
