    Fedfan I like your playlist. I hadn't heard most of those before since it's not a type of music I listen to but the music videos were really interesting too!

    Posh, I've heard AWOL Nation a million times on the radio, but never did see the video till now. Kinda puts them in a different perspective for me. Thanks

    It's all good!
    Heck I've been known to watch the PBS Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour on many occasions.

    And when I feel like really antagonizing the family I'll flip on the Big Joe Polka Show and laugh/giggle like a school boy.

    Oh yeah, they are definitely out there!! Hahaha. If you catch one of their live shows its crazy, almost like being in a scifi slow from the 70's or something. The visual aspect of their concerts is really amazing.

    Probably electrorock or synthpop. Basically catchy alternative music with a large helping of electronic music mixed in. I would put AWOLNation on the hard spectrum of that

    and probably your chillwave on the softer side like Panama

    Thank you for the welcome Shortydude and Bill!

    Great stuff, BILL!! You got me stirred up now.
    Here is my favorite JMBoys:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIJv-JXgiJ4
    (Dudley Connell's one of the great 'ears bleeding' lead singers, IMO)

    and Hot Rize:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SaJDGfQus0
    BTW, I'm a serious admirer of the late Charles Sawtelle's guitar playing.

    Here's a couple of Jimmy Martin faves:

    (This might be a cover of a Hank Sr. recording)
    and
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzKXZyFFgCw
    'The Last Song' is another good one. He was a great rhythm guitarist, too. Did some some nifty bass runs.

    Larry Sparks has done a ton of great stuff. Really like Georgia Peaches, not sure who the singing partner is:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wC-o9jaqluQ
    Another great guitarist.

    I get a kick out of this Flatt/Scruggs song. It's a great example of Josh Graves' virtuosity on an instrument (dobro) that wasn't standard to bluegrass at the time.

    On that note, something that has always impressed me about Scruggs and Don Reno on banjo is how far ahead of their time they were. They were masters of their instruments at a time when their particular style of playing (3-finger) was just being established.

    Speaking of Don Reno, here's a couple of examples of his banjo playing and his flat-pick guitar playing:
    Love Please Come Home
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BupVRG1kj7Q
    John Henry w/Ralph Stanley
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZXDPE6C8h8
    Country Boy Rock n Roll
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoHBQhAt5f4
    Freight Train Boogie
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19Uq_91CfD8

    A couple Moore and Napier classics:
    Truck Driver's Queen
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsTAgtKX_dQ
    Lonesome Wind Blues
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPa_TdegvNY
    Great guitar picking by Bill Napier, a multi-instrumentalist who spent a good bit of time w/the Stanley Bros before teaming w/Charlie Moore, who had a fine baritone voice.

    And a few instrumentals I never get tired of hearing:
    Get Up John by R Skaggs and KY Thunder
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVhWx36GFpI
    Train 45 by Ralph Stanley's band, the Clinch Mt Boys. He could no longer play
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMydc293aVU
    Southern Flavor by B Monroe and M Stuart
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NcCgsAMxhs
    Reuben by Flatt n Scruggs
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqci8CdgkzU

    That should keep you all busy for awhile. :-)

    Sorry about that, shortydude. But remember...you asked for it! ;-)

    Here's a sampling of Hot Rize. They're based out of Boulder, Colorado and my #1 favorite of the "modern" bands:

    Country Boy Rock and Roll: www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DzxgjWne8
    Midnight On The Highway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGba...Hc3T_vbTmPczWt

    This Larry Sparks segment is from a show on the RFD channel:

    John Deere Tractor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGba...Hc3T_vbTmPczWt

    Fedfan mentioned the Johnson Mountain Boys among his favorites for good reason. Unfortunately they're no longer active but here's a live performance from a few years ago:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teVuNoASfs0

    Here's Bill Monroe's distinctive version of Hank Williams' Alabama Waltz. Monroe can be an acquired taste, and this one is not for the squeamish:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayUWTEg5z50

    Finally, here's a Flatt & Scruggs "Martha White Flour" show from back in the day. The Foggy Mountain Boys were in their prime and smoking hot. It begins with 'Flint Hill Special', one of Earl's trademark instrumentals. Goodness Gracious!

    Welcome to the forum, Posh, glad to have you! I'm not familiar with your musical selections, but I'm guessing even fewer have ever heard of the stuff I listen to ;-)

    You, Fedfan, are obviously a Connoisseur of Fine Things ;-)

    It's a little obscure, but for the ultimate high-lonesome ear-bleed give a listen sometime to Monroe's 'Alabama Waltz'. Anyone who hears it, and likes it, can consider themselves off the Rockwell scale among the hardest of the hard core.

    Have you heard Larry Sparks' 'John Deere Tractor'? It's understated and superb. The ultimate "country boy stuck in city pines to go home" tune. Of the new bands--- I listen to a lot, don't get excited about much, but agree that the JMB were terrific. Hot Rize is back together and even though not 100 percent traditional they're fantastic, the best live show I've ever seen. I could ramble on endlessly about this and bore the bulk of the forum audience to tears or even drive them to...skiing :-(

    The biggest problem with bluegrass is the post Monroe, pre-Uncle Josh early '50's Flatt & Scruggs Columbia catalog. It's so great and so perfect that anything after it might be good but will always be second best.

    LOL. Guilty as charged. I'm not familiar with that joke, but when I think of his "response" part on the chorus of 'I Hear A Voice Calling', I get it. I got the bug about 30 yrs ago when I happened to find a Stanley Bros cassette in a Kmart mark-down bin and decided to give it a listen. I'm partial to that era: ear-bleeders like Jimmy Martin, some of Monroe's stuff, Flatt & Scruggs, the Stanleys, etc. Currently, I guess Del McCoury and some of the disbanded Johnson Mt Boys stuff are favorites and I really like the guitar playing of Larry Sparks.

    I remember listening to Skillet like 16 or 17 years ago. A bit surprised they still exist.
