Earl Scruggs passed yesterday! The best Bluegrass Ambassador ever, the best banjo player there has ever been or ever will be. He was one of my all time best bluegrass idol's

I saw the Earl Scruggs Revue live in concert in 1975, give or take a year......him and his sons. What a great, great show. Later on in life, I tried to learn how to play a banjo myself. Naturally I wanted to learn the Scruggs style of three finger picking. Long story short, I could hit all the notes but I couldnt make the music. His style of playing is even harder than it looks. At least it was for me. A real american icon. May he rest in peace.

Joe, I have not smoked a cuban in 4 years but I still have a few hundred in the humidor and that would be a reason to smoke one once again for sure. ( I been looking for an excuse to have one anyway lol) We shall pass by your way one of these days. The Hatch Chile Fest is always on our schedule

yes, he was 88 when he died & he still did a few concerts. I am a banjo freak so when I work out each morning I listen to Earl ( and other Bluegrass) on my MP3. It really makes the time fly by and I love working out to the beat

Earl and Lester used to have Martha White Self-Rising Flour for a sponsor on their TV show. "Now you bake right, with Martha White .......".

I could never master that claw hammer style. He was a pioneer. Listen to Bela Fleck some time...it's easy to hear who was his inspiration.
