Genre: Country / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/2/18, this is the Rough & Ready Fruit Jar Pickers sing-along version. Lots of people singing, lots of instruments, countrified style. My solo is minimal, heard after the electric guitar after the first verse. The FJPers disbanded last June. I played every Sunday with this rollicking group for 14 years. We always had an audience with songbooks who flipped through the book as our leader, Everette Burkhard, called out each song number. From gospel songs to old-time to country, we made lots of music over the years, sometimes sounding great, sometimes pretty awful. But it was always about being with friends and having fun together at the Rough and Ready Opry Palace and later at the Grange when they tore down the palace and put up a beautiful fire station.

That’s the first time I’ve heard your 3 finger picking... it sounded great to me. That must’ve been great fun!

Thanks, Greg. If you listen to my “Bluegrass jukebox” on my site you’ll hear more. In the FJPers I almost exclusively picked.
