Doug Dillard - Better than Earl?

Posted by Evil on Friday, May 4, 2007

Well after playing nothing but Earl, Earl and Earl for a over a year my wife got me a Dillards album and now I'm blown away with Dougs style of banjo playing. dougs Tune is now my favorite tune to play, followed by dooley :) still dig Earl but they is just something about Dougs style of playing that I really like. is it because doug seems to lead with this fingers and Earl leads with his thumb? I don't know answers on a postcard :)

     Richie, they're both gteat.  As you begin to develop your own style youi may find - as I have - that certain approaches used by each have their place in a variety of songs, many of which neither recorded. 

     Back in the early 1960s Doug was THE fastest player I'd ever heard.

those two belong to an exclusive club where it's no longer a matter one being better than the other, only stylisticly different and there's not a thing wrong with that... nothing wrong with having a favorite either 'cause it keeps the world goin' 'round...
