Farewell Earl Scruggs -"Dim Lights - Thick Smoke"

There are no further words to add to all that has been written about Earl Scruggs since he passed away earlier this week. His funeral is being held today in Nashville. This TV appearance from the 1950's, with Lester Flatt, doing "Dim Lights Thick Smoke" is one of my favorites. The vocals are great, but just listen to that banjo singing in Earl Scruggs signature 3 finger style. I chose this tune in order to showcase that Earl Scruggs was a star, in his own right, long before "The Beverly Hillbillies" came along. Thanks for the music Earl, now you're picking in Heaven...
