    Tough, tough year for us acoustic music and bluegrass lovers. Among others, we lost both total pioneers within weeks, Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson. Each utterly changed the face of acoustic music forever. Their time had come and they had lived long, wonderful, musical lives, but their loss is no less sad. Thank goodness there is a young generation of incredible musicians dedicated to this music!

    Schmoopy, you never end a sentence with a preposition. Well, you do, obviously, but it's against grammatical rules.

    Try to take solace in the fact that you're a better guitar player than he is...
    now, anyways.


    He was cool. I think I remember him playing with Jerry Garcia at some point, but I might be wrong.
