So I'm currently taking an online class on bluegrass singing, and one of the tunes is East Virginia Blues, and old classic tune. I thought since it's pretty simple it'd be a good exercise in playing backup and playing at the same time. Anyways after a bit I started to feel more comfortable and I recorded for posterity sake a version of it:
I'm not sure why I recorded it with headphones on, nothing is playing in them, haha. One thing I noticed listening to the recording is that it's hard to not overpower your own singing while playing. The other thing I noticed is that i must be pressing to hard down cause my should kinda hurts now. 🙁
Thanks! It's a little slow and old timey compared to bluegrass normally, but a little change is good. Did ou leave me comments on the video about wanting to see the fingerings?
Haha thanks. Yeah hopefully it'll just get better and better the more I practice it.
Someday maybe I can sing and play too!
That is a great tune. A gentleman at the jam I attend just started playing it I am in the process of trying to learn it.
