Nice tribute, Spaw. Uncle Josh's obit should have hundreds of hits by now. His leads were unforgettable, perfectly crafted and not at all 'second-fiddle' to what Earl was up to. Aggressive finger picking with a nice, bluesy swing. He toured for years rather informally with Kenny Baker, who was equally accomplished and tasteful, and the two of them made great music long after Josh could stand up. His nephew Tim Graves plays around the bluegrass circuits. Sorry to lose this legend.
