Food for Thought #3 - Is it Time We Stopped Calling People 'Gifted'?

This week's food for thought centres around the question 'should we stop calling people 'gifted'?'I've been thinking a lot (and talking to other people) about the notion of 'gifted' vs 'hard working' and wanted to share some thoughts on it with you.In the episode I mention a great documentary called 'Flamekeeper - The Michael Cleveland Story'. I highly recommend it. If you're interested you can buy or rent it via Amazon.I'd love to know what you think about this topic. Have a listen, then head over to Bluegrass Jamalong's Instagram or Facebook to join in the conversation.Happy picking!Matt

Om Podcasten

The podcast for anyone and everyone who plays bluegrass. Every week we feature a different fiddle tune and give you three brand new backing tracks: Backup 4 times through (you play the tune or improvise breaks), Tune 4 times through (you play backup) and ‘Jam Along’ (4 complete run throughs, alternating backup and tune). They work with any instrument - guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, bass, banjo…even if you’re a bluegrass cellist (I have actually met one!). For more info and chord charts, visit https://bluegrassjamalong.com. Hope you find these tracks useful (and thanks for listening!) - Matt
