    Are you guys loving Billy Strings as much as I am? He might just be the most exciting thing to come out recently, and he’s so young!

    I’m hoping he’ll perform on the East Coast soon..

    I had no idea who you were talking about
    For others in the same boat:

    This song is apparently about being busted for meth

    I'm still not sure how some people get monster tone from acoustic instruments, but he sure does.
    He makes a guitar sing in the same way a great fiddle player does.
    Just amazing.

    Yes. I've been binging all the stuff I can find of his. He's got a great story about selling weed to buy his Dad's long gone pawned guitar back, if you like podcast interviews.

    He was taught Bluegrass by his dad then was in some metal bands then found his way back to Bluegrass

    Great player but I worry about him some . He is starting to look like Billy Strungout here lately.

    He is far ahead of his time, and beyond his young age. His picking is one thing but his song writing is a whole other animal
