Chinese bluegrass?

Posted by DandyRandy on Monday, February 18, 2008

Not really, but you can listen to some traditional chinese instruments including the ruan, which looks like a banjo but has a deeper sound, and a hammered dulcimer, which if you listen to the song closely enough, actually has a bluegrass sound to it.

Pete Seeger writes that Ed McCurdy came to him saying that he had been listening to Chinese music and that he liked it a lot because it had "that high lonesome sound."

well, i am writing about wayfaring people, a k a travelling people who was on the roads for a reason or several, including me..

It is not a certain thing that people have a home, car, house or anything like that, even if we can imagine so many times, especially in a western world, but there is people out there on the roads, like in the old days and ways as well...though, i did something about it, like fought like a deamon...unfortunately not smooth, because nothing is for free and given, so me for example had to use the "elbows"...well, that is life..and that is what i am writing about
