    If you are ready for some supercharged fun on the banjo, this is the arrangement of Oh Susanna for you. This is a super sweet Scruggsified melody-yes it's a word! It's styled the way Ron Stewart might play it. A lot of the licks and approach are similar to the his recording of Sourwood Mountain. Come live the Scrugg life!

    This is a fun arrangement of Oh Susanna meant for the Advancing Beginner. Not too much challenge here. This arrangement can be used as a launching pad for single string, but if you use the lick switcher, you'll notice it could be a launching pad for any style! That's because we've started with the core melody, giving you a blank canvas to paint on. Use the lick switcher to get some ideas on how you could color this arrangement. Make it your own!
