The vast majority of bluegrass does not exploit either instrument to anywhere near its capacity. If all one does on these instruments is play bluegrass, one is ignoring worlds of technique and musicality available with them.

*But of course there is tremendous value to be had in studying a new discipline, instruments in traditional and idiomatic forms, etc.
