Thanks to Gloria Boyd for keeping these clips on YouTube. Some classic fiddle breaks by Jim also. youtu.be/MWZgrvghrnI
That was absolutely wonderful!
That was really worth seeing. The way the players looked at Shumate, and drunk in his music, lingered on his words. The expression on Sonny's face.
Thanks for sharing.
If you know the banjo instruction term "the cabin lick", you might be interested to know that Shumate actually invented that lick, on the fiddle. Earl picked it up from him, doing a masterful job moving it to the banjo.
You can hear Shumate play it in Someday We'll Meet Again Sweetheart.
Great stuff !!! thanks for posting.
I love hearing "history lessons" like this!
