Few musicians are able to revolutionize how their instrument is played and Earl Scruggs was one. He belongs in that category of rare species that mark a point in the evolution of an instrument where you can say there’s a ”Before” and an “After” along with Charlie Christian on electric guitar, Jaco Pastorius on electric bass, Coleman Hawkins on tenor sax, Clarence White on flatpicking acoustic guitar, etc.
Earl passed away on March 28, 2012 at the age of 88. We have his music here at the Denton Public Library and of course there are great videos on YouTube- specifically look for parts of the great documentary from about ’71-’72 when he formed a band with his sons and featuring a few folks named Dylan, Monroe, McGuinn, Doc, etc. Highly recommended!
