Raleigh and Spencer - Scruggs Style

  • Scruggs Style
  • Key   D minor
  • Tempo   150 bpm
  • Tuning   aDGBD
This is arrangement of Raleigh and Spencer is very close to the way Billy Failing has played this tune. Billy is the banjo player for flat-pick phenom Billy Strings. Don't be fooled by his name. Billy Failing can set the 5 string on fire. Take this one slow at first. While we all want to play as fast and clean as Billy, we should focus first on being clean banjo pickers. We're be better off practicing slowly and clean--instead of fast and sloppy. Accuracy should be put before speed whenever possible.
