Music Legend Earl Scruggs Passes

Yesterday legendary bluegrass banjo player, Earl Scruggs, passed away. Here is a link to an article on wral.com about Scruggs. Scruggs is credited with inventing the style of “picking” the banjo verses strumming. His most famous song is the Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

Earl has at least one son, Randy, who is a renowned guitarist. Here is someone’s youtube video that has Randy playing “Amazing Grace” on guitar. Enjoy! And rest in peace Earl.
