Big Rock Candy Mountain - Bluegrass

  • Bluegrass
  • Key   C
  • Tempo   90 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE

Listen on:

The arrangement is mostly based on 16th-notes in double stops that holds the melody. However, there are a few spots that spice the solo up - like the slides in bars 3, 7, and 9 and the triplet in bar 9 that is played by two subsequent hammer-ons. Be careful not to speed up here (use a metronome and backing tracks as a play-along in slow tempo when practicing).
