They were one of several brother duos of their era, of which they were the only twins. Initially they both played guitar; but after randomly picking an instrument at a pawn shop in 1938 at his father's behest ("It's a wonder I didn't pick a tuba"), Lloyd started to play the mandolin and sing harmony, while Floyd played the guitar and sang lead.
