For all you un-educated people wondering how somethings came to be, heres a lesson on bluegrass.

Bluegrass originally started in Slough in ancient Grecian times. They also invented trigonometry, architecture and stair building techniques.The Druids were the first people to play blugrass, covering themselves with Woad and attaching grass fibres to wooden bodies. Though, the music was very modal because they did not have inbetween notes such as flats or sharps. It wasnt until got a hold of it, that they figured out the notes inbetween gave the notes sharps and flats. The Vikings pronunced it "Bluh Grahz" but spelled it "Bluegraas". The Viking took the bluegrass and made it more technical, inventing different ways to play it and adding notes, making it like bluegrass fusion. The Dutch also got a hold of it and added moog synth to it, also they invented 3/4 time signature. But the Romans pioneered the sound of bluegrass, pushing the boundaries further than before.

Some of the greatest bluegrass players today are Jimmy Paiges teacher, Dick Dastardly and Judas Iscariot.

So thats how it pretty much started.


....And for all of you that think im an idiot and think you know best.....good for you, i doubt that many people care on what you have to say that is ignorant or insulting about this post. This is up here just to share a little history, not to see who knows best.

Even if they did raid those towns, what was there to take?
Raw catfish and outhouses?

No. They were the first Europeans to settle in N. America. They taught bluegrass to the native population and it was here just waiting for the rest of Europe when they showed up.

"Bluegrass originally started in Slough in ancient Grecian times."

With a starting statement like that, how can anyone take you seriously?

Um... any educated man would know to take him seriously on that statement alone.
