Bill Monroe invented the basic "high lonesome" sound of bluerass music. His influnce cannot be denied. However, it was Earl who rapped that sound around an instrument that had never really been utilized in the bluegrass band before. Once people discovered what one extraorinary man could do with five fingers and a banjo,bluegrass and Earl Scruggs was off and running and has never been the same since.
