Thread Name: Is bluegrass an attitude?
Subject: RE: Is bluegrass an attitude?
Well, there's one attitude I've noticed among bluegrass musicians. I don't play an instrument, but I love to sing. Bluegrass musicians tend to think of singing as an annoyance, or at least secondary in importance to the instruments. When I've sung with bluegrass musicians, they often don't want to sing all the verses of a song - one or two will suffice for them, even if you need a few more verses to tell the whole story.
It makes it hard on a singer, ya know.
