I blew out my knee at work about 2 months ago and had surgery, so I've had about 8 hours a day to work on Bill Monroe instrumentals on my Rattlesnake mandolin!!! It's great because at this accelerated learning rate that I'm currently in, I'm learning several tunes a day. For instance, I learned "Goin Up Caney" this morning in about a 1/2 hour. The other day I learned "Bluegrass Stomp", "Uncle Pen" and "In the Pines". I knew some things off the "Master of Bluegrass" album like "Old Ebenezer Scrooge" before, but now I've added "Come Hither to Go Yonder", "Evening Prayer Blues" and "Lady of the Blue Ridge". I'm learning these studio recorded tunes pretty much note-for note because I'm in this mindset where each tune is a building block to new levels. I even learned "Sunset" by the Country Gentlemen! Even my wife is impressed!
