    Noting today's 5th anniversary of the publication of this great book. A real must read by Walter Carter.

    Got the book, along with Sparks, MacDonald and others... doing my homework. I've always been interested in the historical and cultural aspects of musical traditions. I hate it when people say "It's always been that way" about any aspect of music, whether classical, bluegrass, or hip-hop. It might not have obvious implications for actually performing, but knowing about different developments and changes in style over time might influence the way you approach a piece from a different time or culture.

    It's also a matter of respect for the people who built a tradition or system that we enjoy playing in. I thank all the scholars out there who take time to find out how we got where we are.

    This is a good read. Lots of information that is new to me. And Iím gaining insight into why so many mandolin players have an attitude about banjos!
