POP QUIZ: BLUEGRASS ROCKS!
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
Well howdy and yeehaw, y’all!
Here’s a fun one. Each of the songs linked below is a cover of a well-known hit from the Classic Rock genre. But, each cover is played ‘bluegrass’ style, meaning banjos, mandolins, acoustic guitars and no drums. (fun fact: when the Grand Ole Opry first started, drums weren’t allowed).
Your task: for each track, identify the title of the song, and the artist for whom it was originally a big, big hit.
A little hint for you, track nine has a long-ish bluegrass flourish/intro, before the really recognizable bit kicks in.
Y’all come back now, y’hear?
