T Hocking - is that actually Green Day? Pretty cool!

Tom, not Green Day, I think it's one of the "Pickin On" tribute series albums, I have it on CD and yeah cool stuff.


Is anyone more badass on dobro than Jerry Douglas?

Jerry Douglas is downright incredible. He's the only dobro player my wife can stand to listen to, which is saying something!

Another amazing dobro player is young Michael Kilby from Squamish (a friend of Chief's). The guy is amazing!

That guitar playing kid in Sleepy Man Banjo Boys has great taste in instruments; he's playing my guitar (not literally).

The Molly Tuttle videos are great. There was a nice side set she did with some locals at the spring 2017 Strawberry. Made some low-quality videos. Jan Purat from Steep Ravine on the fiddle.

New Riders of the Purple Sage, but we all already gnow that.
Take a moment, say a prayer for Jessie
I saw he was feeling poorly,
if that was fresh?
I'm not a face book follower or anything so I have no idea if he is or isn't

He fo'sure really can play tho- check out Jessie in the Pork-Pie hat!

Mike Stevens, harmonica, and Jim and Jesse
performing backstage at the Grand Ole Opry with a bit of pointless babbling,
but cross pickin' demonstration & mention of a then new cd release of a Bill Monroe tribute album. worth the watch.

Wow, how haven't I seen this thread before?! Great stuff!!

We were just out visiting some family and hit up the Boats and Bluegrass festival in Winona MN. Awesome fest, I highly recommend it. Listening to bluegrass bands while floating around in canoes on the Mississippi River sure seems like the best way to do it, and lots of great jams all around. Some really amazing twang talent coming from that region of the country for sure

Pert Near was one of my favorites. How can you not dig a band with a clogger?

I went to the Maltby Jam here in the Seattle area, and lo and behold, Perry Beckham ("Chief") showed up all the way from Squamish. Great to see him again!

Man...does he have a sweet 30's vintage Martin guitar--nearly pristine. Hard to believe anything nearly 80 years old could look like that (at least I know I won't!).

We play whatever music we want... (within our abilitys) wish I was good enough to play jazz..... love the mando. banjo on the other hand is only good on some songs and not in an overpowering role. When the banjo is the primary thing you hear and its all about picking as fast as humanly possible it has no soul and is just noise. I liked this enough to learn it and one of my buds learned the banjo part.

To much of everything is just enough, when the skills are present
(the structure of the picker's fingertips, more toe-like, equate to very strong-boned'd hands & fingers)

Gnome, thanks for the Billy Strings link... bluegrass mastery as a singer and 6 string picker (and he makes it look fairly easy but it's not), and overall sound mix with banjo bass and mandolin sounding pretty darn good.

A thanks as well to Hooblie, for that wonderful version of Gentle on My Mind. Glenn Campbell was one of my Mom's favorite musicians.

He really is! ^^^

I see that he's going to be at the music festival in Quincy, CA next summer. Tempted to make it work. The guy had a rough road as a kid, and he's done really well.

Inspired me to take a longer break from work, pick up the guitar (which is pretty rare these days) and free noodle a bit. Hackin' fer sure, but it still feels good. I used to get good ideas, diamonds to pluck out of the coal, from this kind of noodling, and try to work them into the fold.



Back to the salt mines!
