Hooked on Bluegrass

Junior Sisk

I got hooked on bluegrass at about the age of 15. My father played guitar and loved the Stanley Brothers. He has just about every recording they did and played the records about every evening. I can remember sitting at the foot of his bed with his J45 Gibson trying to learn all of George Shuffler's licks. I also learned every song off of the Whitley and Skaggs album with my cousin Tim Massey. Then in the early eighties I heard the Johnson Mountain Boys and they hooked me deep!
