Regarding the "Chinese guy" from the video above:

I generally avoid anything that says 'One Direction' about it unless it makes them look bad.

But this is crazy good: http://poponandon.com/discover-lissie-story-of-my-life-one-direction-cover/

Sometimes they cover their own songs.

That's awesome Cue! I was listening to a bluegrass cover recently - Punch Brothers covering Wilco!

The Punch Brothers are amazing. I really like Chris Thile's other band, Nickel Creek too.

But have you heard this one too, then?

Ooh I hadn't heard that one! Very nice! I like Nickel Creek too, though my very favourite bluegrassy thing in the world is Chris Eldridge's side project with Julian Lage. This is technically still on topic for the thread, as it is a Seldom Scene cover ;)

Those solos are absolutely nuts! Superb!

Have you heard Nickel Creek's most recent album? I.e. ever since they got back together a few months back? That was really quite interesting - I had just liked their page on Facebook despite knowing that they disbanded. A few days/weeks later I saw the announcement that they were getting the band back together. I wish I could see them but they wouldn't sell many tickets in The Netherlands I'm afraid.

To stay on topic - here's Hayloft off of said album, originally a Mother Mother song. I'd call it more poppy than bluegrassy, but I like it.

I haven't heard it, but saw from Chris Thile's twitter that there was another Nickel Creek album (and incidentally that Punch Bros are currently recording their next!). I should check it out.  I'm in London so really spoilt with the bands that come through here! My next gig is the Jayhawks next month. I'm super excited :D

Here they are covering Bad Time by Grand Funk:

Loved it! :)

BTW, besides the C and the E-shaped barre chords, what are the other chord shapes that he's using?

I'm terrible at trying to pick out chords people are playing (that should be an instructional video series of its own). I do love that song and cover though, and he's doing a great job with the 'boot bass' keeping the song grounded. That's a cool street technique to pick up.

@Scooter... my eyesight not so good on this one and forgetting about the capo.... it looks like he is playing maybe a Bb minor or Bbm7  -- which is E Shape and the chord name may be off due to capo.

Also it looks like he plays an A shape with 3 fingers AND index on the high e only... that is a Dd again adjust for capo up or down a note.

Then an F

Let's see.. if you play C G Am F

He plays an F and it looks like capo so F#, then a Db would be a D, the Bb would be a B

D, - , Bm, F#  ... and doesn't he play an A So D A Bm F#  maybe that F# is a G... Anyway it looks like he is playing the same thing you do only pitched up a whole tone.

The only unusual chord is the three finger A shape

That guy actually sounds a bit like Bob.
