Hey, it's June 2008 and I can now play the down the neck part of Foggy Mountain Breakdown, so apparently it is possible to make progress!  Not sure if I would have kept up with it without the hangout.  Input from others is a great help, as is hearing of their difficulties.  Thanks all.

Hi Roy

Glad to hear you have nailed FMB. It is a bit tricky tune to learn but you'll  be pleased to hear that, that tune has the basic structure for most of the Scruggs licks. As you continue to work through Murphy's Lessons you will find she refers back to that Lesson time and time again. So keep practicing. I would also suggest that you practice that Tag Lick in isolation just pratcice it over and over it will help to flex the muscles on the middle finger and prepare you for the pushoff which is the next lick you need to master.

Happy Pickin
