The Picking's Good

Doc Watson has played across five decades of bluegrass music.

"It's a joy and a pleasure," Watson says of playing with his grandson. "Sometimes I forget and call him Merle, and he says, 'That's all right, Pa. I don't mind a bit.'"

Doc Watson and his guitar continue down the line.

After a few more minutes of conversation, Watson says abruptly, "I'm gonna have to go in a minute, son." He thanks me for calling; after only thirty minutes on the phone with him, I'm reluctant to let him go, but I do. "You take care," he says. "I'll be lookin' forward to shake a howdy with you."
