Some years back I joined a jam group that themed itself around bluegrass music. As I was just a good old country boy and not particularly versed in bluegrass I set about to learn a new repitoir. I found that while bluegrass was often quite monotonous Bluegrass gospel was quite another story.

Now I don't mean to offend but I must admit that I am not particularly a man of religion. A man of faith, yes, but not much on organized religion. However bluegrass gospel has two things going for it. ONE: It usualy carries a valuable message laid out in a good story. TWO: It's music is often written in a format that seems to often be ahead of it's time.

One of the first tunes I decided to learn was 'Drifting Too Far From The Shore' simply because it's both beautiful and simple to play. Thus I could impress without having to learn a whole new set of guitar skills. The best thing about it is that it just seems to get better every time you play it.

Why don't you listen to this cover of 'Drifting Too Far From The Shore' and see what I mean.
