Very sad day yesterday with the passing of banjo icon Earl Scruggs.  Thought it might be nice to share your thoughts and memories of everyone's favorite banjo picker. Maybe your favorite Earl Scruggs tune, etc. 

Personally, I loved not only his great banjo pickin', but he was quite a fingerstyle pickin' guitarist too.  I loved hearing him and Paul Warren when they would gang around the mic and do an old-style fiddle & banjo number - as Lester would say "the original band - just a fiddle and a banjo. Here's one of my favorites.
