Hear the Whistle Blow a Hundred Miles - Earl Scruggs

  • Earl Scruggs
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   85 bpm
  • Tuning   eDGBD
This arrangement is closely based on Earl's playing from the live at Carnegie record by Flatt & Scruggs. Several of the licks capture the variations he played and have some other tasty Scruggs style options to give you some variation after you've learned this arrangement. Turn on the swing feature in the playback tab for this one, as that is how Flatt & Scruggs did it. Pay attention to the timing of the ornaments in the arrangements and licks. Use the focus feature to listen repeatedly before playing and to practice. Listen also to the recorded examples linked in Spotify and Apple music.
