When I moved to the Boston area in 1974 there were two stand-out flatpick guitarists in town: George Nelson and Dick Fegy. I would see them at various area events and marvel at their prowess.

I think Dick came to a place I was living in Watertown one time to pick with me.

A couple years later I moved in to the Old Joe Clark house (where Dick had lived) and started trodding some of the same musical ground as Dick (ie becoming a multi-instrumentalist and eclectic string band musician). But I was frustrated because by the time I got decent enough to really play with him he had left town and hit the road with Bromberg (who would occasionally appear at Old Joe's with Sandy on a fiddle mission of some kind).

It was great hearing his classy playing early on in my musical life. Rest in peace Dick.
