Bluegrass Songs

While the banjo and mandolin are more prominently featured in the bluegrass genre, the guitar is likewise commonly utilized for rhythm and chord progression layering.

Simple chord progressions and fast strumming are often used by bluegrass guitarists to drive rhythm, while melodies, crosspicking and flatpicking are sometimes tasked to them as well. Those who master bluegrass guitar must have a firm handle on rhythm and quick picking abilities with their right hand.

The well-known “Dueling Banjos” track and Traditional’s “Old Joe Clark” are good examples of bluegrass guitar.
