Bradley Laird's Grass Talk Radio Podcast
The podcast for people who play bluegrass music or want to!
Episode 126 - Song Structures
The majority of bluegrass songs and tunes will fall into five categories based upon their structure. There are two main types of instrumentals and three variations of vocal songs. Recognizing these structural differences will help you deternine what to do during your solos and to better arrange songs for your band or jam session.
I present audio examples so that you can hear each structure type. After listening to this you'll never ask the question "Am I supposed to play the verse or the chorus during my break?" Enjoy the show.
