When i were a nipper, well 18-20, i used to drink in a folk club on an airforce base (Ironically being on a Military base it was heavily subsidised and had a lack approach to the law). Very occasionaly they would have this Blue Grass band play and they were god awful. For many years i thought Blue Grass was a musical form inveted by a tone deaf pervert. It wasn't until several years ago that i heard some other stuff (can't recall what) and it was actually quite good.
Gerbil,That is about how I used to feel - it was God Awful, sometimes too twangy, sometimes just bad.But most of the time it is good. I am building up a good CD collection of bluegrass. But I like almost all improvisational msuic.
eddie- Do you have any Tony Rice? I always thought he was really good....
Steve,Tony Rice eh?I'll keep an eye out for him.I think by now we probably have a hundred or so bluegrass CDs and I think for the most part, if not totally, they were done by amatures; by people who have not quit their day job and play their music when they can get off work, if their boss will let them.
