Hickory Nut Gap. That is a classic guitar in the history of country and bluegrass music, and well-played-in for sure. Tony Rice will be the first to tell you that Jimmy was the template for bluegrass rhythm guitar, and that was his workhorse right there. Great bluegrass player, singer, writer, arranger, and producer. I love his music. Read the new book. I've done and said things I'm not proud of.
I won't stand in judgement of Jimmy or anyone else. I can understand why he wasn't voted into the Opry. Not sure I agree with it. But it doesn't sound like he endeared himself to some of the Opry members with his often alcohol fueled behavior. I can see both sides of the issue. Sometimes our humanity gets a little too close to the surface. I was glad to hear he and Ricky Skaggs "reconciled" before Jimmy's death But I miss Jimmy.
He just brought so much to bluegrass and even country music. I believe he recorded one cut with Bill Monroe. Check out the rhythm playing on "On and On".
