Bluegrass with the relatives
« on: September 04, 2012, 12:56:54 PM »
This Labor day my family and I went to a reunion on my wife's side.  We all broke out our guitars, banjos and dobros and had a great time!  Pretty new to bluegrass flat-picking, but I'm hooked!  We've agreed to practice up 'til our next gathering and compare what we've learned new.

Man, what a good time!

I thought I would post some pics of us playing at the reunion...

Here we are playing a rendition of "Amazing Grace" to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun"...I'm in the middle with the cheesy grin...Levi is in the red playing my W240 12-string.  Matthew is behind everyone else.  We sang and played so much I deadened a new set of strings.


Here is Matthew playing an old Harmony that I fixed up for him.  He's more comfortable on classical guitar, but still loves to play steel string...Daniel, the banjo player has played in several bands and was VERY good!  He put us to shame! :)
