Flatpicking Guitar Magazine was -- and
still is -- one of the greatest resources for flatpickers. Even
though it ceased publication with the September/October 2016
edition, The website is still full of great articles and
information. In addition, back-issues of the magazine are still
available in the digital download format (PDF and MP).
FLATPICK-L was a mailing list for folks who are interested
in exchanging ideas, information, and music related to flatpicked
acoustic guitar. The website seems to be inactive, but there is
still a nice selection of Tony Rice tabs.

Guitarists and other
instrumentalists are subject to a variety of music-related
injuries that can lead to pain, damage, and even to the
inability to continue playing. Here's a website that contains a
variety of links to other sites on this subject: The Perils
of Being a Musician
I've recently become aware of a couple of
very useful pieces of software for musicians. The first is the Amazing Slow
Downer. It's available for both Windows and Macintosh
(including OS X), and does a wonderful job of slowing down fast
tunes without changing the pitch. You can specify how much to
"stretch" the tune, and can adjust the pitch, as well. It can read
tunes from CDs, as well as reading MP3 files from disk.
A lot of online tablature is
available only in TablEdit format (.tef). You can purchase TablEdit
or download the free TEFview viewer on the TablEdit Tablature
Editor site. They are availble for both Mac and Windows.
