    Chris just posted a video of the entire G minor sonata. He's sitting on his couch, and the camera is pointed directly at him the whole time. Thought I'd link to it here for those obsessives like me...

    Re: Good starter Bill Monroe Album

    "The High Lonesome Sound" is my favorite and I would recommend having it but I wouldn't recommend it as a first album if you aren't familiar with Bill. You would have to get it on vinyl. One of the...

    Re: Good starter Bill Monroe Album

    I'd also recommend a non Monroe Cd from Butch Waller called "Golden Gate Promenade". It great Monroe tunes (for the most part), clean and available on iTunes. You won't be disappointed.

    Bluegrass Ramble

    Great (very traditional) material, great singing, great band, great mandolin playing. Not available as a CD but easily found in LP (or cassette) form.

    Re: Good starter Bill Monroe Album

    If you don't want to spring for a 4-CD box set just yet, the 2-CD Anthology (~$20) is a good entry point. Lots of classic tracks starting from the early 1950s, when he really hit his stride (IMO).

    Bill's playing was a "fluid" thing over time....the mandolin of the 30's and early 40's wasn't the playing of the late 40's or early 50's and then on to the playing of the late 50's to mid 60's and...
