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

Notes: This is the way I play the song in the key of G (the key of D is another story), and it varies in subtle ways from the other versions posted on BHO. For example, I emphasize forward rolls, to give it extra punch, and I suspect that you will find the G-D-G turnarounds to be useful in lots of tunes. It's too bad that Earl did not take a break when he recorded it with Monroe in 1947 or so.

I have never seen an F chord in key of G version of Little Cabin Home on Hill. This sounds more like Little Maggie to me.

The F chord acts as a G9 and provides a strong sense of impending change (i.e., chord change). It is quite common to employ it the way did to signal the change from G to C.

This is a break for Litle Maggie. Look in the bottom left hand corner of the tab. It even says 'Little Maggie".
