Virtuosity

Foggy Mountain Breakdown by Earl Scruggs (and friends), from the self-titled album.

Toe tapping perfection.

1 Earl kicks ass!

Lester Flatt ain't to shabby either.

2 I have the Bonnie and Clyde soundtrack here somewhere.Great jam!I used to love the episodes of the Beverly Hillbillies that they would show up in.
Up until just a couple of years ago we used to have weekly bluegrass jamborees right up the road here on the porch of the country store every tuesday night.A little parking lot that could barely hold 4-5 cars stuffed with a hundred or more people.The cars where parked wherever could be found in peoples yards and everything.
The guy who ran the store had to stop doing it because none of the cheap bastard would ever buy anything at the store.Pretty cool while it lasted,though.

3 Ever hear Earl's son play that solo version of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now? It's on the Circle album.

Anyway, the Scruggs family is pure talent.

4 I love that album,and I love that song. If you ever catch the video to that song, you get to see Steve Martin do one of the breaks. Another very talented banjo player.
