This entry has cross purposes:
Lenny Breau was another guy who grew up in town here who succumbed to the evils of life in the fast lane.
But what a player! This is a great video where he plays a well known Dylan song but at the points where he starts to improvise you realize just what a special talent he was.
The beginning of the video also raises the question: how long does a picker need to grow their nails? Most will say 1/8th to 3/16ths of an inch max past the finger tips. Lenny proves that its whatever length you feel comfortable with.
