The Girl I Left Behind Me - Scruggs Style

  • Scruggs Style
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   120 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD
This is a fun arrangement of The Girl I Left Behind Me. Then again, when is Scruggs style banjo not fun? Well it can be frustrating to learn, but I guarantee if you force yourself to go as slow as necessary to get the notes right, you will enjoy the learning process more. Isolating a measure or two to nail down new licks is a good practice habit. Try it out for the first measure in the B part. The right hand is a little bit tricky, but nothing you can't handle with a little patience. Remember, slow and steady wins the race!
