Re: Old Time vs. Bluegrass Format for a Slow Jam?
to me an old-time jam is like a drum circle. There's an energy created that trancends individual prowess. I go to an old-time jam for therapy - to experience that vibe. Sure, we all have to fit in to what each other is playing. That's the musical component. Each individual can vary their unison play, sometimes noting the melody on high strings and next time on the lower strings or such. That's fun to mess with and learn from too.
I really can't comment on bluegrass jamming though. . .
