    Default Burns & Clark

    Stumbled upon this clip of Jethro Burns & Roy Clark on Hee Haw form 1980.
    His 2nd break is quite nice, to say the least.

    Hmmmm … Is that a 70's master model J.B. is playing. The inlay pattern and coloring suggest so. R/

    That's his Washburn, with some tape over the name, I think. As Jethro sometimes said, "...the Gibson mandolin company has asked me to announce that tonight I am playing a Washburn mandolin."

    I don’t see any tape on the peghead. There is nothing so humbling than watching Jethro just letting it “come out” he plays with a completely unflappable smoothness, Roy’s no slouch either!

    I like the way Jethro just grins at Roy after the second break. Kinda like top that!

    Right, tape. Must have been the pre-coffee floaters this morning.

    And speaking of floating, that's what Jethro's fingers seem to do all over the neck. The ease that he played with is pretty amazing.

    Roy looks like he’s hanging on for dear life while Jethro just smokes it.
    Play it like you mean it.
