Notes: This is my version of the fun instrumental by Vernon Derrick. I came up with a lead part which pretty much mimics the triplet runs you'll hear fiddlers play for this tune. Then I came up with a note for note part for a twin banjo or that you can play with a fiddler who's playing lead. This is my first attempt at tabbing a tune. This is tabbed at 1/2 speed basically so I could more clearly convey the triplets, etc. I hope you enjoy!

Crossing The Big Sandy (Big Sandy River)

Notes: This is my version of this fun traditional fiddle tune. Part A is fairly straightforward, and I've included two different melodic versions for Part B for you to mess around with. I hope you enjoy.

Genre: Country  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: 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.

Sam's Tune (original)

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: This is a tune I wrote several years ago which was inspired by a musical phrase (a "lick") I heard on one of Sam Bush's albums. It's amazing what a lick can inspire. So I named the tune after Sam. It's a fun tune to play so I thought I'd throw it out there for whoever might be interested. I hope you enjoy :)
