Foggy Mountain Special - Scruggs Signature

  • Scruggs Signature
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   85 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD

This is a transcription of Earl Scruggs' banjo playing as heard on the "Foggy Mountain Jamboree" album. The track opens with Earl's banjo playing and he solos over the chord progression twice. The arrangement here is based on his first time through the progression. There's lots of tricky slides and bends, so use that focus feature to nail down tough measures. Also, try out some licks if you get the main part of the song down. Blending in modern techniques and styles every now and then can yield some pretty cool results if you are into that.

Pay close attention to the suggested fingerings for the fret hand as well as the pick hand fingerings.
