In the world of bluegrass Dobro guitar playing, three names stand above the rest—Josh Graves, Mike Auldridge, and Jerry Douglas. All of them were innovators; each took the acoustic steel guitar to music and places it had not been before. Jerry Douglas is the only one of the three still living, and he continues to make path breaking music. He is part of the musical generation, including Tony Rice, Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs, and Bela Fleck, which came to prominence in the 1970s and helped make bluegrass what it is today. His influence has been profound.
This is a wonderful test of your bluegrass knowledge. I will be truly impressed if you can guess this one!!! Good question, Dick Bowden!!!!
