Old San Antone:
As promised, a thread celebrating Bluegrass and Old Time Music in all its forms.  On another thread a discussion emerged about acoustic guitar playing, flatpicking as it is known among Bluegrass musicians.  Here's a few clips, some veterans and some young players carrying on the flatpicking tradition.

I've very much enjoyed Bela Fleck's Tales From the Acoustic Planet CDs

Bela Fleck has also done some really good things with Abigail Washburn, another banjoist who stretches out on the instrument.  Then there's Chris Thile with The Punch Brothers and  The Goat Rodeo Sessions with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bassist Edgar Meyer and fiddle player Stuart Duncan.

There's a whole new generation of bluegrass and old time players who honor the tradition while bringing in the taste of other genres.  Now is a great time for this music.

Count me in among bluegrass fans. As for flatpicking, I'm big on Doc Watson. I have a couple of youtubes saved out that I'll post later, he can really get down with it. :)

I was hoping someone would post some Doc Watson.  A master on both guitar and banjo.
