  • Scruggs Style

    Difficulty

    A simple but fun Scruggs style arrangement of this classic fiddle tune. The first measure of the B part may be kind of tricky for you so make use of the looper and tempo slider to control your speed and put in your reps. You'll have it nailed in no time! But if you are making mistakes(when in practice mode) you are going to fast. Don't be afraid to practice at a Snail's pace. It's actually one of the best things you can do to improve.

  • Melodic Style

    Difficulty

    Nothing too fancy here. Take your time and play for good tone and note connection. Remember when practicing: Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast. Earl Scruggs' goal was not to be the fastest banjo player, but the smoothest-and look what happened...He got both!

  • Backup

    Difficulty

    Just some simple backup that stays away from the melody notes. Notice how the roll patterns change near the end of the repeats. This helps the ear establish where the ending is-for the players and the listener. Also, notice how a completely different roll pattern is used for the B part. This contrast really helps to distinguish the two sections.
