A trip to Florida included the first time sitting a blue grass style music jam. Simply stated, traditional old time music is mainly an upbeat instrumental dance music with the fiddle being the lead instrument while bluegrass is a vocal style where the instruments freely improvise and is led by the banjo or mandolin. Or at least that is how I understand this works. The part that was most interesting and challenging as a beginner was the solos that are called out for a specific player at different points in a song. This was my first time with this, and I do hope my solo playing was good enough. There is also the need to learn some traditional blue grass tunes to sing as the ones I picked were somewhat elementary and more old time. Looking forward to the next time I try this out.
