Hi Leth - check your email, I tried to send you a couple of mails that might be of use - a PDF and a Video. Couldn't find out how to forward them to you via here. Regards. Bryan.

I just play it by the chords. It starts in G, first position, then changes to E minor (2 fingers on 1 and 4 string at 2nd fret). It changes back and forth, and somewhere in there hits a D, first position.
After playing that pattern for a time, you move the G and E minor up to 2nd position, and then to 3rd position for the high points.
Tabs of course will help you find the positions.

Forgot to mention. Foggy was recorded in open G tuning by the Ricky Skaggs and the Del McCoury bands. But the famous version by Earl and Lester was recorded in G sharp. The easiest way to play along with Earl's recording is to put your capo on the first fret (Unless your ear is good enough to tighten all the strings by one half step to G sharp tuning).

The famous Scruggs lick is used at the opening. If you don't know it, just enter scruggs lick on the search or google it. It's a big part of what gives the song it's character and the thumb needs to be used in this lick.

Sorry, meant to say FMB lick instead of Scruggs lick.
