Worried Man Blues - Earl Scruggs: Kickoff

  • Earl Scruggs: Kickoff
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   115 bpm
  • Tuning   gDGBD

This arrangement is a note for note transcription of Earl Scruggs' banjo playing. If you've played the other versions we have for this tune, you'll notice this one is a bit shorter. This is how Flatt & Scruggs played it on their record, "Songs of the Famous Carter Family". Make sure to read the tablature and listen to with the Tunefox player before picking up your instrument at each practice session. That will help you memorize how it's supposed to sound. This is a powerful and invaluable practice component. Don't skip it or overlook it!

Check out some of those licks for some variation if you can get the main arrangement down.
