Greatest Banjoists of All Time

Scruggs had played an open back banjo using the frailing technique, though as an adult Earl had no recollection of his father’s playing. Scruggs played the pump organ. Scruggs recalls a visit to his uncle’s home at age six to hear a blind banjo player named Mack Woolbright, who played a finger picking style and had recorded for Columbia Records. I couldn’t imagine — he was the first, what I call a good banjo player. He moved it around depending on what part of the neck he was playing. His first radio performance was at age 11 on a talent scout show. This motion is followed by striking the thumb on a single string. When done skillfully and in rapid sequence, the style allows any digit though usually the thumb to play a melody, while the other two digits play arpeggios of the melody line. The use of picks gives each note a louder percussive attack, creating an exciting effect, described by The New York Times as “like thumbtacks plinking rhythmically on a tin roof”.

Speaking on a live webcast on July 20, , she said, “I actually wrote all the songs myself for this record.

It didn’t really happen on purpose, it just sort of happened. Like, I’d get my best ideas at 3: Yet, Swift goes there—’all the time’—in ‘Back to December’ by delivering an apology to an ex-boyfriend, which she never did on her prior two albums. I looked at her and I’m like, ‘Taylor, this record isn’t about fairy tales and high school anymore. That’s not where you’re at. I don’t think the record should be called Enchanted. By the time she came back, she had the Speak Now title, which comes closer to representing the evolution that the album represents in her career and in her still-young understanding of the world.

Swift explained that the uptempo country pop song was about her tendency to run from love. The song’s lyrics were revised several times, and the banjo that was originally played on the track was removed. It received positive reviews from critics, who regarded it as one of the highlights of Speak Now. The song is one of two songs where Swift first incorporated an orchestra on record, [23] and lyrically it was the first time that Swift ever apologized to someone in a song.

In this lesson we are going to review by going over two of the tunes you already know, Cripple Creek, and Fireball Mail, both based on the playing of bluegrass pioneer Earl Scruggs. Both Scruggs recordings are from the classic Foggy Mountain Banjo album, recorded on Columbia- which apparently is back in print, and available from Amazon. The next three Cripple Creek MP3 examples are all fiddle recordings.

Don’t worry — your e-mail address is totally secure. I promise to use it only to send you Clock Collecting Tips. There are so many styles and types of clocks, made by so many clock makers and from so many countries, that I was totally lost. Over many years, I have learned a lot. I have concentrated on the American clock companies for my collection, so there is much for me to learn about clocks from outside the US.

The question I get most from the comment form on this web site is:

I landed on this by accident. Capoed up 3, can be used for G-minor. Rufus Crisp is also said to have used this tuning. Perhaps Fred invented it in G, and Tommy in A.

Just another Thai dating site, and not free Are there any other options to meet a sideline girl in Chiang Mai? Chris November 20, at 8: We go out for a meal occasionally at the better Thai restaurants and invariably the better looking waitresses are university students trying to make an extra buck. Many of the girls have facebook accounts and are actively advertising their services on facebook and other social networking services.

But again, all in Thai script and language. So it appears for us Farangs that are limited in or cannot speak, read and write Thai, this is a no go. Seems that the Thais are hogging all the fun and keeping the best girls for themselves and have to settle for the old Skank in the Loi Kroh road. Reply Chris December 1, at 5: Instead check out my map on Mongers in Chiang Mai there is a place called Piano Karaoke, go there girls are takeaway and are the best looking girls in Town!

There are other places in Chiang Mai but for quality i recommend that place because the girls are young most under 20 and are all from Chiang Mai not like Loi Kroh where the girls are all dark skinned and from other towns. Reply someone December 21, at

He first garnered notice with the release of his single “Bragging Writes”. Delivering his thoughtful lyrics with confidence and ease, J-Live’s rapping was strong and his soul-inflected grooves immediately appealed to fans of underground hip-hop. A year later he followed up with another hit, “Hush the Crowd”, and started to generate a palpable buzz.

At this point, though, J-Live was beset by a host of troubles. Amidst constant label shuffling and plagued by a series of illegal bootlegs, the release of “The Best Part” was delayed for four years. There was some talk that J-Live was behind some of the bootlegs — a few of which were of extremely high quality — and the ongoing saga became something of an underground legend.

In the interim, J-Live worked as an eighth-grade teacher in Brooklyn, NY, and continued to embellish and refine his debut.
