Country Music Hall of Famer Earl Scruggs, a singular talent of collective import, died Wednesday at a Nashville hospital. He was 88.

A quietly affable presence, Scruggs popularized a complex, three-fingered style of playing banjo that transformed the instrument, inspired nearly every banjo player who followed him and became a central element in what is now known as bluegrass music.

But Scruggs' legacy is in no way limited to or defined by bluegrass, a genre that he and partner Lester Flatt dominated as Flatt and Scruggs in the 1950s and '60s: His adaptability and open-minded approach to musicality and to collaboration made him a bridge between genres and generations.

Memory Eternal!

Vicnaja pamjat!

There was never one like him before and there will never be one like him again, at least when it comes to influencing a particular instrument.
