This is Paul Race, author of most of the articles on this web site. I love reader questions. In fact, most of the articles on this site are the result of reader questions.
That doesn't mean I know everything, of course. So not only am I open to comments and corrections, I also learn as much from some reader questions as our readers do.
Here are some good ways to get ahold of me.
USPS Mail - If you have something to mail, you can send it in care of:
Paul D. Race
Springfield OH 45502
Newsletter Signups - If you like acoustic and traditional music and you'd like to be informed about new articles we've posted, as well as what I'm up to musically these days, please go to the Momma Don't 'Low page. There you will learn about joining our free program for fans, writers, performers, and producers of acoustic and traditional music.
The primary benefit currently is the free e-mail newsletter that discusses all of those topics above and more. We plan to include other features as time permits.
Questions and Comments for Paul (no signup required) - If you have any kind of question or comment for me, please use the form below.
The survey is optional, but it helps us to know where people are "coming from."
Playing Acoustic or Folk Instruments for Fun
Performing as a Solo Performer
Performing with a band, chorus or other group
Participating in Musical Theatre
And just for fun, please let us know any instruments you play. (Optional.) Nobody will see this but us. Also, if you feel like something needs more clarification, just put the additional details in the "Others" area below this list. If we get a number of folks listing the same instrument that we don't call out individually in this list, we may add it.
