    Note - I didn't consider that those two you mentioned have a pronounced "ragtime" feel with chromatic runs and cross picking. I don't think that any of the ones I mentioned fall into that category, but you might still like them. Thanks for reminding me of "Beaumont Rag", I learned that one last year and should keep playing it so I don't forget.

    More old-time than bluegrass, perhaps.

    Anything from Del McCoury. The Steeldrivers were hard to beat too.
