    Default Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar (The Delmore Brothers)

    Heard this on the bluegrass channel tonight and it knocked me out. It's from the 1930s but it sounds as good as new. I believe you're hearing guitar and tenor guitar (no mando, but tenor guitar is not too far off for us CBOM fans). Reading up on the Delmore Brothers - major dudes when it came to the early days of country music. Anyway, enjoy their great harmonizing -

    The Delmore Brothers were great and had a huge influence on country music. Also a big influence on Doc Watson as well.

    It has been a long time since I have read it but anyone interested in the Delmore Brothers should read this autobiography by Alton......
