Title: Bluegrass/Old Time Connections for Guitarists
Description: Maybe you're a Bluegrass guitarist who finds yourself yawning while playing strict rhythm in an Old Time jam, or perhaps you're an Old Time rhythm champ who scoffs at the exhibitionist nature of Bluegrass jams. Or you could be someone who loves these two similar, yet divergent styles and would love to see the two worlds collide more. The truth is that Old Time guitar playing can be exciting and complex, Bluegrass can be tasteful and understated, and a dive deep into both will only strengthen overall musicianship. We'll be exploring the similarities and differences of Old Time and Bluegrass guitar playing, examples of guitarists who stray from strict, standard approaches, and immediately useable ways to enrich your own playing of either or both styles - rhythm and lead.
