Right, M.Ted. Like Old Timey is rife with creative interpretation. Let's play "Soldier's Joy" a lot and let's play it the same way, over and over. Ooh, let's do it, again. (zzzzzzzzz......).
One of the reasons I like bluegrass, blues, and swing is the flexability of the arrangements and the freedom of lead.
Also, I apologise to Dick Greenhaus for suggesting he is a scholar. He has spent a lifetime nurturing and protecting his innocence and natural ignorance.
Dick is one of my oldest friends, which will give you an idea what a swell life I lead.
