    So I tweeted a message out to the world- Jerry picked up on it. What a gentleman!

    Jerry is a super nice fellow.
    He is totally "the man".
    It's easier to list the people he hasn't worked with than the ones that he has.

    Cool photo.

    So obviously Jerry inspired!

    I'm surprised the strap and guitar fit that little guy!

    I met Jerry years ago at a bluegrass fest in Kentucky. He was real nice and took time to visit. Amazing player. He really took Dobro to another universe.

    NPR is playing or replaying a segment one of their producers did with Jerry, which is airing today.

    Jerry does a wonderful job of explaining where the instrument came from and talking about how as a kid he stayed with the bass player of the band he was touring with; how they came and basically "scouted" him out of his Dad's local band from Warren Ohio. All a bunch of guys from West Virginia who had moved North to work in the steel mills.
