  1. The Bad Grounds (Mountain Heat/Aaron Ramsey)-- Tab inside

    Hey guys, worked on this one a while back, and I'm trying to get better at tabbing stuff out that isn't my own crazy shorthand. This is as much for me to learn as it is for y'all. If anyone wants to...

    Re: Still cant play a break!

    Don't be afraid to crash and burn either. It'll click. Most bluegrass and gospel songs rely on very similar melodic ideas and "key notes". As you try breaks pay attention to what sounds right....

    Re: Question on Manzanita album

    I don't have the liner notes handy, but Grisman is definitely on Blackberry Blossom. Doesn't sound like Sam at all. Seems like the notes were incorrect on that one based on what a lot of people in...

    Re: Best Online Sites For Learning

    For a total beginner, I think Mike Marshall would be a great one. It's very systematic and organized. Banjo Ben is really good too. I'd also say to think about how serious you are about it. If it's...

    Re: A trip to Elderly

    What did you think of the Ellis mandos? I'm starting to do some research on my next purchase and those are near the top of my list of instruments to check out.

    Re: Luthiers in Atlanta?

    Thanks everyone! Randy Wood is fantastic, but I'm just not keen on shipping my instrument if I don't have to and I don't have time to get over to Savannah anytime soon. That's a pretty good haul.

    Luthiers in Atlanta?

    Hey guys, maybe the wrong sub-forum for this, but does anyone know someone in Atlanta they'd trust to do a good setup? I have a Collings MF that needs some fretwork and a good setup.

    Thanks!

    Re: RockyGrass Live Stream on now

    Not only is it the fact that they could have just done very straightforward arrangements of all this and it would have kicked ass, but they have made this stuff incredibly interesting.

    I'll be that guy and go ahead and ask if anyone was able to record this Punch Brothers set. As a Tony Rice fanatic this is pretty much a dream come true.

    Just so this is on the internet for posterity-- in the Punch Brothers set Chris Eldridge just played Tony Rice's second solo from Cattle in the Cane note for note while Noam Pikelny doubled the same...

    Re: Whew...some Reverb sellers...

    I had a similar experience on Reverb, but surprisingly it was with a pretty high end guitar store. I was inquiring about a pretty high end (6,500 dollar or so) guitar and the response I got to some...

    Re: Southern flavor

    This is just not correct. Many many versions of this song (including Monroe's) are in E minor. If you want to play major chords over it, that's fine and will create a different sound, but most of the...

    Re: southern flavor - key?

    I don't think I've ever heard this song played in a key other than E minor whether it be a recording or with local pickers.
