Earl Scruggs: Fingerpicks Jimmy Brown the Newsboy

Everybody knows Earl Scruggs for his banjo, but here’s a song called Jimmy Brown the Newsboy where Earl shows off his super clean fingerpicking guitar style.

The Youtube description says that Earl learned a lot about guitar from his friend and neighbor Maybelle Carter. Well, no doubt, but Earl definitely took it to another level.

This particular video was a part of a series that Flatt & Scruggs did on the Grand Ole Opry that was sponsored by the flour manufacturer Martha White.
