Ole Slew Foot - Melody

  • Melody
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   60 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD

This melody provides you with both the verse and chorus. The verse is listed as the "A" section, and the chorus is listed as the "B". You can use the focus feature to practice individual measures or link multiple measures to practice a section at a time. If you plan to work on the Scruggs Style version on this tune, focus on the Verse melody as that is the section you'd play over when taking a lead break at a jam or in a band.

If you know the song, try and sing the words as you play. If you don't know the words, listen to a recording until you do! We provide Spotify and Apple Music links so you can quickly add songs you are working on to a playlist and listen to those at times when you can't reach for your banjo. Listening is practice! Reading the tablature before you play each time is also a great form of practice.

After getting the basic melody down, make sure to try out some licks!
