Joe Maphis, “Flying Fingers”
The link between blazing acoustic bluegrass and electrified country shred began with Joe Maphis and his furious flatpicking on songs like “Flying Fingers,” which he recorded in 1956.
Maphis played both the six-string track and overdubbed octave-guitar unison track using both necks of his custom Mosrite double-neck guitar. During the Fifties, Maphis frequently performed on the Town Hall/Ranch Party television program, shredding the strings along with guests that included Ricky Nelson and a 12-year-old Larry Collins.
