Earl Scruggs passed away last week. His funeral was held Sunday at the Ryman Auditorium, a fitting place for a man who helped shape country music. Scruggs played with Bill Monroe’s” Blue Grass Boys” for three years before he and Lester Flatt left the band and formed their own, “The Foggy Mountain Boys”in 1948. Earl Scruggs was the banjo player that popularized what became known as “Scruggs Style” ,using three fingers to play the strings.

In 1962 Scruggs joined with Lester Flatt and Jerry Scoggins to record what would become one of his most familiar songs, ”TheBallad Of Jed Clampett” It was played at the beginning and end of each segment of the “Beverly Hillbillies.” The boys appeared in several episodes. Including “Jed  Throws A Wing-Ding.”
