Oops no, that's Peggy Sue not Susie Q judging by the list of records that Buddy Holly had. 😉

He played dobro on Glen Campbell's 1963 album Big Bluegrass Special. He also toured with Emmylou Harris. In 1979 he also recorded an album with Jerry Lee Lewis.

You are funny, 😋 they are not brothers.

James collaborated with the following artist

Emmylou Harris Hot Band, John Denver, Ricky Nelson and TCB Band. TCB acronym stands for Taking Care of Business which Elvis Presley adopted in the early 1970s.

Burton's style of playing was quite unique. He uses a straight pick and fingerpick on his middle finger. On his record, he replaces his first 4 strings with Banjo strings and moved the A, D string to D and E. This made the legendary Chickin Pickin.
