Of course “Uncle Dave” Macon7 was there. So when ol’ Earl hit that three-finger roll, man, everybody was up looking, and Uncle Dave was so jealous, you know, he thought he was the king of the roost there. ” He wouldn’t call him Earl. Everybody was just making over Earl, and Dave walked up and said, “You played pretty good, Ernest. You don’t sing any a’tall, do you? ” I told Lester about a time that Bill Monroe had Lester and Earl, Cedric Rainwater, and Chubby Wise, and they put this songbook on the market.
I wondered what he was talking about. It took a couple of years for it to sink in that he was saying that without that sound in there, they’d go right back to what it was before. It wasn’t a planned thing, and that’s what made it so good that it happened. At first my left hand was true, but this right hand just didn’t have it; you can hear on some of the old stuff.

My kids are part Cherokee, and I’m proud of that. V Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, and Earl Scruggs I remember the first night Bill Monroe hit the Opry with his new band, late in 1945.
