What about some Bluegrass music

Now thats what I am talking about Greg.  What do you mean you don't like bluegrass?  You just threw out some Seldom Scene on us.  That is good stuff!  John Duffey was the man! RIP  This is one of my favorites from the scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk9vhhGyRyo&feature=related

Speaking of Duffey I need to post some Country Gentlemen.

I like where this thread is going.

Greg, I'm not a big Bluegrass fan either, but I sure did like the 2 selections that you picked. In fact, I listened to each several times over. I got a Mandolin some time ago and am trying to get the hang of it. I wanted to learn and play Celtic pieces. But I was really taken with the groups you selected. Most bluegrass I'm familiar with sounds like somebody wailing away, LOL. I'm glad to see and hear there is another side to Bluegrass.

So, it's New years eve.  I will be ringing in the new year with The Old Crow Medicine show band at the Ryman auditorium here in Nashville.  Not a bad place to be to say goodbye to '09.

HEY JUNIOR, you might like 'em, check these guys out.
This is their most popular song... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH0CnjXqCLE

svgustin, Great show!  Old Crow Medicine Show always puts on an amazing show.  If anybody here ever has a chance to see them live, DO IT!
I did have a little too much to drink, but hey it was new years.  Happy new year everybody!

Banjos----[xx(]

I don't listen to bluegrass.  I do have a few friends that are pretty good at it.

Here's Zane:

OK----So, there's a banjo.  What's a poor boy to do when he's your dad and you're playing in his theatre?

If there's a banjo laying aroung the best that you can hope for is that Raymond Fairchild picks it up.[;)]

Well, greg, I do agree with you some. I have a whole bunch of banjo player jokes too. Although you can play bluegrass without a banjo....(oh my god....I'm defending banjos! What's got into me?)......you kinda need 'em sometimes to get that special sound.....I don't know really....
now, nobody put their paw up when I mentioned Bryan Sutton. so here is clip showing a little something he can do. If I could only be reborn.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG9Az8fOkeg
I play Lonesome Fiddle Blues with my buddy the banjo player. Don't quite sound like that. [:p]

Hi Ryan (this sounds like an AA meeting) you don't have to like redgrass or bluegrass music. But if it ever gets under your skin and into your blood, let me know. There is no cure I'm afraid. Just be glad you are not my kid. They have to put up with my music all the time.porr darlings. I do listen to theirs though and I like most of it.....

Junior, I was going to ask what kind of music do you like?  I see you said classic rock.
I am not trying to force bluegrass, but the thing is that there is so much under the umbrella of bluegrass you have  Americana, old time string band music, jam grass, new grass, a lot of nontraditional stuff.  I was in your shoes a few years ago.  I only listened to old stuff and a was searching for new music that I thought had great songs, musicians and vocals and I found it under the umbrella of bluegrass.  It is the only new stuff I can stand.

I was listening to something today you might like. Do you like Jack White from the White stripes?
Watch this and give me your opinion.... jack with ricky skaggs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qahZ-whM6o
