    Default Bluegrass Videos

    To avoid going too OT on the Joe Val thread, why not start one on bluegrass videos alone. Just earlier we were talking about Country Gentlemen early vids.
    Unfortunately, I don't know of any, but have some audio show. Their show was indeed entertaining!

    Thanks! The Dawg break was interesting but, nobody plays it like Larry Rice did.
    I knew a guy who used a "noose" strap on his F-2, his was a saxophone strap and he just stuck the hook in the sound hole! He chewed the life out of that poor thing, it turns my stomach to even think about it!

    I love Joe Val, here's another fine mess you can feed Nick!
    My wife just looked over my shoulder and asked:

    Yep, the (at the time) young pup from Philadelphia, Mississippi smoked Rawhide. He picked a bit of it on the opening track on this LP, just like in that video Nick posted. Some like it hot, some don't. I remember talking to a mandolin pro some time back and he asked me who I dug. I said Marty Stuart. He said "I don't".

    As a young man I used to burn Rawhide about the same speed but now it takes me about five minutes to just play the first half of the break, not really but I have to play it slower now days and the other band members like it that way at also, they are getting old also...Marty is a very underrated musician in my opinion, one of the best not only on mandolin but also on guitar...I wonder if he has ever been considered for mandolin player of the year at IBMA? Or is that for another thread posting?

    Now it's embedded to where the video window is in the post...btw, love me some Graham Parsons as apparently so did J.D. Crowe as his bands covered several of Graham's songs.
