My heart beats to the rythm of Bluegrass. Here's an old favorite from the 1950's

Bluegrass is so popular world wide that they even have a Yiddish version

Brian, if there is a category for Todd Taylor in the Guiness Book of Records for fastest banjo playing, perhaps some of us could compete for the slowest banjo playing spot.

Anyway, I'm sure those Americans among you who have been weaned were fed an early diet of bluegrass.  You may not be aware, however, that it is a legal requirement here to know at least one Slim Dusty song.  A friend stayed recently, and despite my warning, hadn't learnt any Slim.  However, after a week of requests for Slim and looks of disgust and amazement, he's learnt his lesson and won't dare return without being able to play a song through.

Slim used to visit isolated communities, and here's one song he wrote for one such community.  Note the lagerphone and teachest bass.

http://au.

Here's another standard. An aboriginal ringer couldn't read and didn't know the sign said poison.

http://au.

I was surprised to see this Australian song sung by Tom T Hall, Ralph Stanley and Judy Marshall.  It was a Henry Lawson poem put to music.  

http://au.

Here is some music if you can understand that sort of thing.

I saw Bela Fleck and the Flecktones a couple years ago.  Amazing.  Victor Wooten is incredible.  I can't wait for them to come around again.

How many of you know all the people, places, things and actions in these two songs? I bet Kathy knows  :-D

The first one has the lyrics on it. The other I had to look for the lyrics and posted them under the link..... PLEASE.... Do try to keep up.  :roll:
And there seems to be a few missing at the end of it. Feel free to add to it.  ;)





Life Is A Rock Lyrics - Reunion

B.B. Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers
Lonnie Mack and twangin' Eddy, here's my ring we're goin' steady
Take it easy, take me higher, liar liar, house on fire
Locomotion, Poco, Passion, Deeper Purple, Satisfaction
Baby baby gotta gotta gimme gimme gettin' hotter
Sammy's cookin', Lesley Gore and Ritchie Valens, end of story
Mahavishnu, fujiyama, kama-sutra, rama-lama
Richard Perry, Spector, Barry, Archies, Righteous, Nilsson, Harry
Shimmy shimmy ko-ko bop and Fats is back and Finger Poppin'

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my DJ told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

FM, AM, hits are clickin' while the clock is tock-a-tickin'
Friends and Romans, salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations
Carly Simon, I behold her, Rolling Stones and centerfoldin'
Johnny Cash and Johnny Rivers, can't stop now, I got the shivers
Mungo Jerry, Peter Peter Paul and Paul and Mary Mary
Dr. John the nightly tripper, Doris Day and Jack the Ripper
Gotta go Sir, gotta swelter, Leon Russell, Gimme Shelter
Miracles in smokey places, slide guitars and Fender basses
Mushroom omelet, Bonnie Bramlett, Wilson Pickett, stop and kick it

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my DJ told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

Arthur Janov's primal screamin', Hawkins, Jay and
Dale and Ronnie, Kukla, Fran and Norma Okla
Denver, John and Osmond, Donny
JJ Cale and ZZ Top and LL Bean and De De Dinah
David Bowie, Steely Dan and sing me prouder, CC Rider
Edgar Winter, Joanie Sommers, Osmond Brothers, Johnny Thunders
Eric Clapton, pedal wah-wah, Stephen Foster, do-dah do-dah
Good Vibrations, Help Me Rhonda, Surfer Girl and Little Honda
Tighter, tighter, honey, honey, sugar, sugar, yummy, yummy
CBS and Warner Brothers, RCA and all the others

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my DJ told me (whoa whoa whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

spoken:
Listen--remember, they're playing our song!
Rock it, sock it, Alan Freed me, Murray Kaufman, try to leave me
Fish, and Swim, and Boston Monkey,
Make it bad and play it funky.
(Wanna take you higher!)

Ahh....  The older composers: Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Mendelssohn, Saint-saens, Chopin, Schubert, Schumann

I really don't like words with my music...I don't agree with most of what modern singers say anyway...at least not the stuff I listened to when I was younger :roll:

I like it that the old composers don't have the baggage that modern ones do.  I have no idea what they were like, and even if I do, their music doesn't convey anything of what they are or what they do, unlike rock and roll of today.

I've played around with a 4 string banjo and a mandolin years ago, they say if you can play one you can play the other as the cording is the same.  Still twang away on a guitar, prefer a 12 string but can't afford one.
That 5 string bass was boss.  My son-in-law made one recently but I have yet to hear him play it.

Who woulda though an alto sax and a big boy (oboe) would have been used in country music.

jerrymac, are you trying to say that i am old??

sure, i have read about some of those people and places.....  :evil:
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Okay... I got toss a song in here, slight interpretive warning, this is not suggestively a nasty song, although it be from a gay group in the 80s that wasn't Queen. I first heard it in the movie Body Double with Craig Wasson (sp.) and I really like it, no comments JP  :evil:  P.S. this is about "on the opposite end of the rainbow" from Jerry's song you'll find.



due to this post, it is actually the first time I have seen this video, thanks all :) There are many versions that the group did of this video, this is by far the most friendly. It sure is a toe tapper that was a big hit on the charts, although not allowed on some stations.

If you need me JP, I'll be in the closet with my laptop dancing with my laser pen  :-D

I have always been intrigued by this song and never could understand what it is about. But has a very catchy tune.
