How Flatt & Scruggs Spend Their Time

This Contest is Closed
The winner is Cecelia Chilton


In one of their most famous recordings, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs seem to spend ¾ of their time “rolling in my sweet baby’s arms”. Now I’m not talking about waltz time here, I mean 75% of their time.

So, if they are spending ¾, or 75% of their time “rolling in my sweet baby’s arms”, what are they doing the other ¼, or 25% of the time? Extra points for illustrating your answer graphically.

  4. Counting their money
  5. Feuding with Bill Monroe
