East Virginia Blues banjo tabs

Back
  • Scruggs Style

    Difficulty

    This break is based off of the classic J.D. Crowe version of the East Virginia Blues. It's not played incredibly fast, but make sure you drive it hard.

    • Key G
    • 125 bpm
    • Tuning gDGBD
    Play Scruggs Style
  • Melodic Style

    Difficulty

    This melodic version focuses on bringing out the vocal melody of East Virginia Blues more than playing fancy licks. Don't worry, there's still some cool stuff!

    • Key G
    • 125 bpm
    • Tuning gDGBD
    Play Melodic Style
  • Backup

    Difficulty

    This is an up-the-neck backup example of East Virginia Blues using lots of forward rolls, and classic Earl Scruggs licks with slight variations.
