I'm a bit of an odd duck. For many years I've played nothing but up-picking, basic strum, bum ditty. Recently, I've fallen into a fingerpicking style as well. Both of them fall under the larger umbrella of Two Finger Index Lead. These would seem to be "old-time" styles, and yet my listening time, tonal preferences, and repertoire are probably 98% bluegrass. I like open back banjos, and yet prefer a bright and snappy tone, a 4th string that rattles your bones, and believe that the best of the best is everything that Lester and Earl did between 1945 and 1953. So here I am, a square peg in a multitude of round holes. That state of affairs seems to suit my nature, so I'm enjoying myself all the more.
