  • Cotten Music Swag - Cotten Music caps are low-profile, 6-panel, baseball caps featuring our full-color logo (new silver stitching) on the front and Nashville, TN (also stitched) on the back. They are fully adjustable, so they should fit most folks.   The regular low-profile caps are available in a washed black, light gray, and blue. We also have larger-size caps (the dome portion is larger) in charcoal. The larger caps have leather adjustment straps. All caps are $20 plus shipping.  To get yours, please email us, call us, or use PayPal at our address. We also have stickers and key ring pick holders in stock. Email or message (Instagram: cottenmusic) us for colors and sizes.
  • Cotten Music's Teaching Staff - For beginning students, Stan Lawrence is a wonderful teacher on both guitar and mandolin; for the intermediate or advanced guitar or mandolin player, we (occasionally, as his schedule allows) offer lessons with Jack Pearson. Email or call the shop for information on setting up lessons with these two fine teachers.
