    Both. :)
    My main instrument is the dobro, and I also dabble in mandolin, fingerstyle guitar (not very bluegrassy) and I have, but can't play, a fiddle.

    Irish and Scots music are both amazing too. They are very closely related to bluegrass of course.

    The bluegrass bands I listen to most are 'Blue Highway' and 'The Infamous Stringdusters'.

    Some of the latter's more recent music has been too progressive for my liking. I like modern bluegrass but some of the very progressive groups seem to do what I call 'country pop'.

    I digress...

    :character00238:hi liam,nice to meet you.
    i know i'm gonna sound daft now,what is a dobro?
    i like both mandolin(though it can be a bit quiet)and guitar(what does fingerstyle mean though?)
    my bro plays a nice bit of guitar.
    i myself am a bit of a fiddler,
    though i have let it slip a lot recently,but am gradually getting back into it.in fact i'ts one big reason i want to shed some weight as well,'cos i want to get back out to the odd session now'n then,also i was going to class regularly up untill about 3 yrs ago,but feel quite embarrased at all the weight i've put on:eek:,and need to get my confidence back.
    i will be sure to check out your bands when i get a chance.
    what started my fiddle mania was a duo called 'folan and davey'i found their cd by accident it's called skin and bow.dont know if you know of them?
    i'm also quite keen on a bit of martin hayes and denis cahill,and i do like kevin burke(though my teacher has been known to wince when i mention him,he doesent feel the same,ha ha!)
    so glad to meet a fellow muso.:)

    oh liam:D
    that was really good!thanks for the link.
    which one is the dobro,the sort of cut out shaped one?and is the 'face up' guitar a fingerstyle,or have i got it all wrong:confused:?that face up guitar makes a lovely sound,very unique.but you can guess i was immediately drawn to the fiddles,what talented guys!!
    i'm still quite new to this link stuff,but will try and put a link on of something i like(unfortunately,i've not found much f and d on line) for you to have a watch of ir you fancy it?
    :)

    What you call the 'face up' guitar is the dobro.

    have a look for Rob Ickes or Jerry Douglas.

    hi liam r.
    sorry about the 'ppp',that was my bad editing skills:eek:
    i had written a post and then though that it didn't look like you were on here anymore,so took it off again.
    sorry to confuse.
    was just that very recently,my daughter has discovered a new sound that she loves,and it turns out to be the dobro!
    so i thought of you and wondered how you were doing and how you were getting on with your music?
    hope you're still playing:)
    well,if her interest stays,i may be looking at buying her a dobro at some point in the future(have seen a couple on amazon that don't seem unreasonable price wise,but may be bad quality),any advice you may have on makes and prices welcome;)
    one player we were watching was called jerry douglass(bbc transatlantic sessions)fantastic!
    who knows maybe i'm gonna have a dobro player in the family!

    i have finally started getting back out to the odd session with my fiddle,and have been really enjoying it(though it has been a bit nerve wracking at times:eek:)would be great if my girl can play with me in the future:)

    anyway,good to say hello to you again.
    hope you are well and happy and have had a good christmas.
    and a happy new year to you too.:)
