Some Old Day - Skaggs Style

  • Skaggs Style
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   80 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE
This is a classic Bluegrass mandolin kickoff as played by Ricky Skaggs on the legendary 0044 album by J.D. Crowe and the New South. Pay attention to the pick directions. We're doing almost all downstrokes except when we do a tremolo. This is crucial to getting a good rhythmic feel on slower tunes like this. Ricky was strongly influenced by Monroe and it's very obvious when we take a look and have a listen to the way he played this.
