There's some great basic Scruggs style options in the lick switcher, along with some great Bluegrass guitar and mandolin inspired single string licks.Learn

My Cabin in Caroline lyrics
There’s a cabin in the pines in the hills of Caroline And a blue-eyed girl is waiting there for me I’ll be going back someday and for her I’ll never stray And the cabin in the hills of Caroline Oh the cabin in the shadows of the pines And a blue-eyed girl way down in Caroline Someda...kin’ my grip for that long long trip Back to the hills of Caroline I want to see that blue-eyed girl she’s the sweetest in the world And the cabin in the hills of Caroline. Oh the cabin in the shadows of the pines And a blue-eyed girl way down in Caroline Someday she’ll be my wife and we’ll live a happy life In the cabin in the hills of Caroline And when it’s late at night and the moon is shinin’ bright And the whipoorwill is calling from the hill Then I’ll tell her of my love beneath the stars above How I love her now and I know I always will. Oh the cabin in the shadows of the pines And a blue-eyed girl way down in Caroline Someday she’ll be my wife and we’ll live a happy life In the cabin in the hills of Caroline
