Earl Scruggs is the great innovator and master of the 5-string banjo; but many do not know that he was (is) also excellent on the guitar. This song, Jimmy Brown the Newsboy, features Earl on lead guitar.
Earl said that he learned a lot about guitar from his friend and neighbor, Mama Maybelle Carter. His style is very similar, except for finger movement. Enjoy!
If you are interested, you may purchase DVDs of these old Martha White Grand Ole Opry shows at http://earlscruggs.com, click on Merchandise, and scroll down to find them. I have no association with them or with Flatt and Scruggs, except as a long-time fan.
