Joe Maphis
Fire On The Strings (Epic Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Lightning fast picker Joe Maphis truly was the "King of the Strings." From the banjo to the guitar, if it had strings, he could master it, especially the double-necked guitar that made him an everlasting icon on the country music scene.

I'll give it an A-.
