Clarence White was a genuine double threat. His brilliant, Doc Watson-inspired acoustic flatpicking, which incorporated lightning-fast fiddle lines played on a vintage Martin D18 and D-28, helped the bluegrass world recognize the guitar as a lead instrument. Several masters of the genre, including Tony Rice and Norman Blake, cite him as a key influence.

Flatpicking, Crosspicking and Hybrid Picking in the style of Clarence White has kept me busy for many years. From my 15th year I have already been grabbed by his beautiful creative style of play. Too bad he went so early, never saw anyone again who could match this high level.
