East Bound and Down (mostly melodic)

Genre: Country  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by banjoy, updated: 8/14/2021

Notes: Old video demo can be seen at https://youtu.be/zCpUuRrTzMk ... This is my original version of Jerry Reed's song "East Bound and Down." I came up with this about 30 years ago and never have actually played this in any band setting, only at occasional jam sessions where this song is pulled out of the hat. I have been asked to tab this song in the past and only got around to doing it today. Part A is almost entirely melodic. For Part B, while not melodic, I give two variations to play around with. For this version you should be able to comfortably play the 2nd string with your middle finger (inside strings) which adds to its bouncy feel. Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

Notes: This tab is pretty close to the banjo break played on the Ricky Scaggs recording. Be sure to capo up 4 if you're going to play with the recording. Happy picking!

Notes: Watched a few YouTube Videos and looked at the guitar chords - hope this is close. Works well enough for the studio recording. Capo 4. Live I think is capo 5. First tab, hope I did this right.

Notes: I worked up this tab of Don William's sentimental ballad in response to an appeal in the Tab Request forum. Here's the link to the discussion: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/273079. The OP described himself as a novice, so I kept the banjo at a beginner/intermediate level. You do need to know how to move around up the neck with your basic closed chord forms, and it helps if you are a soft-hearted old goat, like the OP and I. I based the back-up very loosely on what the piano and guitar are doing on the video that was posted in the request thread.

Notes: Jkroener asked me to tab this out on the "Need a Tab?" forum: https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/380335/#4843806 Here's AB Junior's video the tab is based off of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEHmVUN_REM I included both breaks he plays, and for singing, any roll that fits within the chords will work fine. I tabbed it out like he played it, but if you have spikes, it sounds nice to spike at the 7th. Have fun pickin!

Notes: Song by Jack Rhodes and Dick Reynolds. I first heard this tune thanks to an mp3 by BHO member 'Erbus'. I enjoyed it immensely and decided to try my hand at my own arrangement. I also added a backing track midi file that can be used to play along.
