Bluegrass Critical Listening

Here is some material that I use for my Critical Listening to Bluegrass class. The class focuses on how the voices and instruments stylistically play together to form the basis for professional sounding bluegrass, and is mostly about understanding bluegrass by listening, so these pages are merely supplemental. But many do find these a bit helpful.
