You might mention to us how you record!  I know you mentioned audacity!!  I am sure some one here could give some advice.  I am sure there would be some collaboraters willing also.  Have you ever thought of getting a recorder?  Right now you can get used Micro Br's quite cheap on e-bay.  It would be a start for you anyway.  Just some thoughts!!

I do have mic, and I think my sister has a better one. All I need is a mic and audacity for basic recording. :D

I know Pine Dog has some cool strums sticks also.  Could get some blue grass going with either of them maybe.

hey Greg....No real hardcore bluegrass players here i'm sorry to say...but then i've noticed that on all the music sites i have ever been on, there is a shortage of them bigtime. I don't think it's because of the genre, but more that bluegrass players seem alot more into performing and jamming live and much less interested in recording. Most folks will agree that the technical process of recording , especially multitracking, is often a wet blanket to creativity and spontaneity. I have a Deering Goodtime 5string that i "paint with" more than play. I love banjos ...but to watch and/or listen to a pro player often is very disheartenening to my almost 63 year old head and fingers. So i just learn what i need to know to get my song flavored. Songwriting is my main interest, moreso than playing. Nothing i would love more than to someday before i die jam with a real bluegrass band. My bluegrass guitar work is not traditional and i'm just learning to flatpick. If you click on "play all my songs" and look down the list, you'll see "Old and in the Way"..my only bluegrass cover here. "Windy Ridge" is hardcore Appalachian with Mt dulcimer and "flatpicked banjo". My best flatpickin' guitar is a song on the list called "Wagon's West"...with a nice mando break from my friend Kevin in Wash state.

  Here is probably the best original bluegrass song i have written. I think a good bluegrass band could really make it go. It's hard being a whole band by yourself.

I also have two mandos and several strumsticks. I have a fairly nice collection of acoustic instruments and it's rather sad that i can't play any of them very well. Maybe in another life....

I'll probably have my friend in South Carolina add some mandolin breaks in the recordings I'm working on. He is very skilled.
