And then the bad news.. 

Bluegrass pioneer and banjo legend, Earl Scruggs died two days ago, on March 28. Practically every banjo player, including myself has Earl to thank for a big part of our sound and the style we play in. As Steve Martin put it: “Few players have changed the way we hear an instrument the way Earl has, putting him in a category with Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Chet Atkins, and Jimi Hendrix.”

Rest in peace Earl, and thank you for the music!
