8ch(pl) Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences (54* d) RE: Old time and Bluegrass-- Differences 22 Jul 03

Bluegrass has evolved in the 60 or so years since it started. The Scruggs style of banjo playing caught on and now is considered the definitive type. Earl Scruggs used to call it "Carolina Picking" and he is credited with it's start, when he joined Bill Mnroe's band in the 1940's. As I meantioned in a previous post, Monroe's first banjo player was Dave "Stringbean" Akeman. He was a clawhammer style player. Scruggs replaced him I believe.
