5 Shredding Bluegrass Songs
Here are five examples -- in five videos -- of wild bluegrass shred.
Josh Williams, "Cherokee Shuffle," Down Home
On this old-time fiddle tune, guitarist Josh Williams (pictured above) shows why he’s truly a “picker’s picker.” His flawless technique, pure acoustic tone and perfect melodic sensibility are all on display, examples of why he has been honored as Guitar Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Association from 2008 to 2010.
An impressive multi-instrumentalist, he currently tours with his own group, The Josh Williams Band, and also is the mandolin player for The Tony Rice Unit.
Check out this video of Williams performing the tune at the Station Inn in Nashville with Punch Brothers guitarist Chris Eldridge and The Infamous String Dusters’ Andy Falco.
