The Bluegrass family of instruments include: fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, string bass, dobro, autoharp, and vocal harmonies (Mills). The five string banjo is the instrument used most to produce the driving syncopated rhythm common in Bluegrass music (Smith). The banjo is most often the telltale characteristic of Bluegrass music. Many Bluegrass songs are based on 3 chords: G, C, and D (Nold), making the songs relatively simple, and easy for the musician to comprehend.

I remember my family singing and playing every time we got together. Only gospel music was heard, we would worship God at our reunions.
