Sometimes I find myself wishing I could play the fiddle. Most of the instrumentals I play on the guitar. (and when I say play I'm being generous), are fiddle tunes.

One of the many bluegrass/gopel songs that I learned when I started learning a Bluegrass repitoir. Bill Monroe's 'Angels Rock Me To Sleep ' is well written lyricaly and pleasing to the ear musicaly. it is such an excelent balance.that it is no wonder it became so popular in its day. If you haven't heard this song befor please give it a listen and I think that you'll see what I mean.

The song 'With Body And Soul' is a lovely bluegrass offering originaly recorded by, Bluegrass Legend, Bill Monroe. This is, I admit, a more countryfied cover because I am at heart a country musician.

Bluegrass musicians where quick to catch on to the...

Some years back I joined a jam group that themed itself around bluegrass music. As I was just a good old country boy and not particularly versed in bluegrass I set about to learn a new repitoir. I found that while bluegrass was often quite monotonous Bluegrass gospel was quite another story.

Now I don't mean to offend but I must admit that I...
