5 Shredding Bluegrass Songs
Here are five examples -- in five videos -- of wild bluegrass shred.
Chris Thile, "Song For A Young Queen," Not All Who Wander Are Lost
Though not necessarily a guitar song, the instrumental “Song For A Young Queen” by former Nickel Creek mandolinist Chris Thile is definitely worth checking out. The floating baroque-esque melodies and contrapuntal harmony of the piece underscore Thile’s compositional prowess, as well as his stunning improvisational and technical abilities. Originally recorded with an all-star bluegrass lineup, Thile now performs the song with his band Punch Brothers, which includes stellar guitarist Chris Eldridge (See the Josh Williams video).
Here’s Thile performing the piece with Punch Brothers:
