    kudos..tremendous research into americas vast unknown songsmith-ery..as only someone far removed from americana can deliver purely


    bravo and continue..great stuff!

    but as i've said b4...(sorry)...but would be so much nicer to hear you playing these obscure classics on a period friendly guitar...please look into it!!!

    cheers

    Very nice!! Probably in my top 3 acoustic styles along with Travis and country blues in general. I actually have a new 12 fret Larrivee 000-40r on the way and I plan to really start spending a lot of time on some of these great rags.

    Well done!!

    Very nice! It's always good to hear roots music - the sources of jazz are many, and their exploration serves to enrich the music. Well done!
    Best regards, k

    Thank you very much for encouragements; I would like to share with you these "classic rags". Have a good day or evening.

    Hey guys how do you start an original post on here? Haha I can't figure it out. I got this theory that bluegrass is the white man's version of jazz. So I kinda wanted to start a jazz verses bluegrass type comparison and contrast. Not which is better mind you just the similarities and differences.
