Jerry "Flux" Douglas is one of the real masters of the resophonic guitar. His speed and melodic taste make him a legend among steel guitarists. Jerry was raised in eastern Ohio, and introduced to the Dobro® through the playing of Josh Graves with Flatt and Scruggs. He began working out his chromatic style when he was about 15.

Jerry started playing with his father's group, the West Virginia Travelers, from Warren, Ohio, from the time he was 15 until he joined the Country Gentlemen in 1973. In 1975, he left to join J.D. Crowe's band. In September 1975 he formed Boone Creek with Ricky Skaggs. Boone Creek disbanded in 1978. Jerry joined the Whites in 1983 and played with them for six years, releasing several records with them. He was one of the first artists signed to the MCA Masters series in 1986 and released three albums (two of which are out of print).
