    Re: Jams and "traditional" bluegrass in Austin, Texas

    You may want to check out The Barbershop in Dripping Springs.....they have some pretty good players at some of their jams and events. You will definitely meet some players there that can hook you up.

    Re: You did WHAT to your BC?

    I wrap the Monster Grips over the rear edge (away from the picking end). Been using them quite awhile now with great results. Never have had to clean them.
