Subject: RE: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences
Blues is more a type of music that lends to jamming because of it's African-American heritage, don't you think?
Yes, I agree wholeheartedly.

Monroe claimed Kentucky bluesman Arnold Schulz as an influence. I think Mose Rager and Ike Everly claimed him as well. I've heard Bill say he considered himself primarily a blues singer and bluegrass is certainly full of blues.
