I freqently (perhaps too frequently) visit the discussion board at reso-nation.org Someone posted a link to a Youtube video of Russ Barenberg and Jerry Douglas playing Big Bug Shuffle from the mid-90s album Skip, Hop and Wobble, which also featured bassist Edgar Meyer.
Stacy Phillips compiled a book of transcriptions from that album, but I never studied them. Watching the video has made me take another look at a new song to work on.
Because I don't play like Jerry Douglas, the song won't sound like Jerry Douglas, but perhaps the result will be a whole new song. We'll see.
