bluegrass fiddle breaks on my way back to the old home

Bluegrass music was built upon historic performances by the creators of the style: Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Vassar Clements, Chubby Wise, Benny Martin, and many others. We study those performances to master the style. And in Bluegrass music, as in Bebop, Rock, and many other genres, quoting a performance from the original recording is considered not only a good idea, it’s a badge of knowledge and belonging, and a way of connecting the past with the present. Knowing these genre-defining solos can help you develop subtle and nuanced musical commentaries on the original solo, and help you create your own accurate, original take on the entire style. We’ve been releasing one solo a week!
