Vince is brilliant on so many instruments. Like Ricky Skaggs- he just smokes. I never saw George's funeral, wish I had, he was one in a million. I actually was in a bluegrass band for years. I play mainly guitar but took up mandolin just because. I still lead worship at church once a month. I can hang on guitar in most circles, but mandolin- wow. I've played with some 12 years olds that made me want to burn it in a bonfire. I still drag it out now and again to remind myself how badly I need to practice. Since I broke my wrist 2 years ago and had 2 subsequent surgeries, it gets tougher to keep up practice than it is to just play.
