Here is a slow example of the A & B parts from an old Ralph Stanley tab booklet. Note the 1/16th note slide on the 3rd string in the B part. In my opinion that is what makes the song work. (Sorry, it's a bit rusty)

Orange Line Special taped 2007 Cabin John, Maryland. Taped on a $20 digital voice recorder. Sorry for quality. Richard Dress on banjo. Compare Ralph Stanley's 1958 version to his 1964 recording and see how much he changed the B part. The older versions are much better, I believe.

Earl does a great job with partial chords, few slurs, no licks (other than the tag variations).

Earl Scruggs likes to signal the tempo in the first couple of notes. In this example he adds that extra space at the end of his kickoff slide.
