This is the first in a new series of episodes called 'Food for Thought'. Each one introduces an interesting (and short!) thought or idea about music that got me thinking about how I play and what music means to me. I'm sharing them in the hope you'll find them interesting and come and join the conversation.
The first is the result of reading an interview with Tony Rice on the Bluegrass Situation website, about how he found his style by trying (and failing!) to sound like Clarence White. You can read the full interview on thebluegrasssituation.com.
It made me think about my playing, as you'll hear in the episode. I'd love it if you listen then head over to Bluegrass Jamalong's Instagram or Facebook to tell us what you think.
