Foggy Mountain Special

Just a little back porch picking. My dad even took a break! He has come a long ways since we started playing 3 years ago! Hope you enjoy it!

Oh shoot! Sorry about that! My name frequently gets spelled with a “C”. I should know better!

Lol. I almost never get my name spelled right, even people who know me well misspell it :roll_eyes: I couldn’t see the text of the article.

Nice! That bass break was pretty cool, too. I like the way your brother kept shuffling the guitar during it.

Great job! I was wondering, does your brother normally play non-bluegrass styles on the guitar? I feel like this song sounds similar to about 3 other Scruggs songs, but I think that about a lot of Scruggs songs…
It’s too bad all the other homeschooled banjo/guitar players live so far from me…

Well, that is an interesting question. He’s had a bunch of different teachers over the last 5 years. The most influential though were our worship pastor and a most awesome swing guitar player named Drew Miller. Through all the different teachers, Dan has taken from this and that and developed his own style of playing. So the answer is no, he is a bluegrass player but he is very versatile in what he can play. He does a bunch of finger style picking too. It would be SO COOL if we could figure out how to get all us kids together for our own “camp and jam”!

We should do the “virtual recording” and do Foggy Mountain Special, Gunnar and the fiddle, and me on the mando.

Yeah unless you add @Fisherbro and @FisherKD. Trouble is we’re all rather scattered across the globe and we don’t have much money for travel.

That would be fun. Guess I should learn FMS on fiddle…:flushed::joy:

If you guys need any help with setting this up or mixing it down, let me know. I’d love to see what y’all come up with.

Thanks Lee! We live on almost an acre on the “poor man’s hill”. It is just enough elevated that we can see over the roofs of those just a little down in elevation. We have lived here longer than I am old. It’s a nice place. :blush:
