Okay, so I am a 80s big hair rock guy (guitar) who has passively listened to bluegrass for a long time, but since I have started my banjo (and acoustic guitar) journey I am trying to “actively” listen more. I am trying to get a lock on tempos of some of the songs I am listening to (mostly Scruggs, Munde, Crowe). So here are a few questions:
- Is most bluegrass 4/4?
- Are the bass notes generally quarter notes? I am not really talking about passing/walking notes but those back and forth notes that happen in each chord .
- With the exception of embellishments, are most rolls 1/8 notes?
Thanks in advance for any help with this.
