Pictures from NAMM 2002

Just in from NAMM.  Great Show, great to be with Warr Guitars for their
triumphant return to NAMM.  Hundreds came by the booth, dozens tried out the
instruments.  It was Great to see veterans of other touchstyle instruments making
great music on the Warr at first touch.

I did some demonstrating, but the monster player we showcased the most was
Randy Strom, who is such a tremendous player.  Jim Wright is also on the top
shelf, he demonstrated the Phalanx and its alternate approach.

Also great to see performances by Trey Gunn, and sponsoerd by other
companies:  Will Lee, Matt Garrison, CGT, and Earth Wind and Fire(!).

Then also on Warr Guitar there is Brian Kenney Fresno - I can't desribe it,
you have to see it for yourself.
