All hail the king of mash-Ron Stewart. Ron is an amazing player that can mimic the styles of the greats, and has one all of his own. Check out his use of slides in the B part, getting a melodic phrase with two slides while keeping the right hand rolling. Notice also the subtle melodic lick at the ends of phrases, which allows him to articulate with great clarity. Ron has come up with some impressive phrases that are sure to be a solid addition to anybody's Scruggs style vocabulary. You are going to love his take on this tune.
