Earl Scruggs: 6th January 1924 to 28th March 2012

Today I heard of the death of Earl Scruggs aged 88years.
For me, Earl Scruggs changed the face of American country music, with his distinctive style of banjo playing of using three fingers to pick the strings he coaxed the instrument to produce syncopated melodies.

Along with Lester Flatt and the Foggy Mountain Boys, their music is Bluegrass.

Rest in Peace Earl.
