Thread Name: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences
Subject: RE: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences
Thanks Mark. Blues is more a type of music that lends to jamming because of it's African-American heritage, don't you think?
I think OT might be closer to this tradition too, though Monroe claims to have learned from a blues musician. (Mose Rager? or am I confusing the name.) I hear lots of blues sounding licks in bluegrass.
