Default Bluegrass Anyone?

I'm playing a gig tonight for a church fundraiser. I'm breaking out the old mandolin, my dad plays banjo, and we have a guy on guitar and another on string bass.

Heh.

I could probably fake it on the fiddle enough to join in, but I'd have trouble playing loud enough for you to hear me halfway across the globe.

I'm sure there's some way to rig up a monitoring and amplification system over the internet. There would still be a little delay though...

LOVE bluegrass, not a big fan of the gospelly stuff though. It kinda freeks the guys out at work when I'm in the kitchen sitching back and forth between Blue Grass, Heavy Metel, and the pipes

I prefer my guitar, but I play a mean assed jug and can do a little something with a washboard, when I can get it in tune.
I've got a buddy who plays bass in 3 bands. One of them is a bluegrass/ gospel outfit. He has a stand-up bass that he rebuilt . I got to play that one once. It was cool ! Kinda like playing a piece of furniture. If he had been smart years ago, he'd have taken up the harmonica instead. Less stuff to carry around. That's why I don't play piano. That , and lack of talent..

HIJACK WARNING!

Jr Pistolero just got himself a drumset. Tonight (since he was gone) I sat down at a real set of drums for the very first time, and of course immediately flashed back to pounding on the school desk in the mid 60's.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha ..... Wipeout!

Foggy Mountain Breakdown by Flatt and Scruggs, baby!

I used to have a five string banjo. Never did learn to play it very well. Sold it in a garage sale a few years back. I may get another one one of these days. Right now I have a couple of electric guitars. Been reading about brewing and brewing so much lately, that I'm sure I need to dust them off big time....

I'm much more blues-based in my musical tastes. But O' Brother Where Art Thou? from the Cohen Bros. flashed in front of my eyes (great flick btw)

Sounds like a good time. Hope it was!
