Part 2 of Bluegrass Series

by Linda Ratcliff Bluegrass has brought more people together and made more friends than any music in the world. - Bill Monroe NEW: Part 2 of our Bluegrass Series

What makes a tune or a song “bluegrass” anyway? Well, if you ask five bluegrass players, you'll most likely get five different answers. Bluegrass music is usually performed by a group with a guitar, an upright bass, a mandolin, a fiddle, and a banjo, and features “high lonesome” three-part singing. Since most of early bluegrass musicians lived in remote areas, the lyrics of their songs reflected life on the farm or in the hills. BUT NOW, dulcimer players can learn to become a part of these fun-lovin' musical groups, and play along with those toe-tappin' tunes that have caught the heart of so many Americans. We have just uploaded Part 2 of our Bluegrass Series for mountain dulcimer players. In the video example on our preview page, Steve continues by reviewing a bluegrass lick going up, and then teaching the lick going back down.
