Thread Name: Pete Seeger Banjo Book Movie
Subject: RE: Help: Pete Seeger Banjo Book Movie
I met Ralph Stanley. I've mentioned that before but I was so elated by it that I try to mention it every chance I get. I was at bean blossom a few weeks ago and he was signing copies of CDs, I asked him if he could give me any tips on learning the banjo and he told me to just bring it to bean blossom and watch and learn. I also spoke with JD Crowe, which was cool. Has anyone else noticed that bluegrass musicians are much nicer than, say, your average rock musician? Ralph Stanley didn't seem to understand why I'd ask him for tips instead of just any old banjo player, incredibly humble..
