Re: Drums in Bluegrass music cover up the mandolin chop IMO.
As a purebred livestock breeder, I'd point out that the highest degree of hybrid vigour is obtained when two well defined gene pools are crossed for the first time. The genetically well defined characteristics of purebred animals are very necessary to get the strengths of a first generation cross. Subsequent crossing of following generations of offspring result in watering down of the original characteristics that were bred for and hybrid vigour falls.
