1) There is a set of tutorial CDs (The Just the Tune series by Rick Townend) which goes with this article. They include music tracks with tabs and standard notation for each and are a great way to learn bluegrass and oldtimey music. Check them out HERE.

3) This is the book "How To Sing" by Lilli Lehmann. "Lilli Lehman (1848–1929). a German operatic soprano, had the superb quality and volume of voice, she became famous as Brünnhilde, Isolde, and in other roles in operas by Richard Wagner. She was also noted as an interpreter of W.A. Mozart." Not exactly bluegrass I know, but her very practical, hands on approach, might give you some useful tips.
4) This glossary of music technology and home recording terms is something I first put together when I was getting an "official" education in the subject. Since then it has been much updated and added to. It seems appropriate to put it here, as more and more musicians and bands working in traditional and folk music, are taking advantage of the ever improving and un costly audio software and hardware for home PCs to record and publish their own CDs. A worthy enterprise, as the established music business seems to have little interest in publishing real music. (You can tell I don't like them.) You will also find quite a lot of useful pure musical information.
