Watch the Bluegrass Rhythm Evolution online guitar lesson by Stephen Mougin from Bluegrass Rhythm Evolution
Much of the rhythm style is dictated by the song you choose to play, but some can be influenced by the players around you. By listening to these stylists, and digging into some characteristics of their sound, you should start noticing when one of these players chooses a particular pattern. The other thing to note is that very few players play the SAME THING all the time (even within a song). Some variation is welcome to allow the song to breath and the lister to refocus and maintain attention.
