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

Notes: Here's a fiddle tune for the banjo, Cincinnati Rag. There's a little bit of cross-picking (crossing one right-hand finger over another) to accommodate the melody. The descending part over the "A" chord in the first section is also kinda hard. This version goes to an E-minor chord one time in the second part. This is the way Kenny Baker (among a few others) played it. I label this "Scruggs" style, but there is also melodic & single string in there.
