Earl's Breakdown

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: G  Difficulty: Expert

Notes: This version contains 4 breaks. The first and third are similar to Earl Scruggs's low and high breaks, the second and fourth are my own. You will note that I wrote the tab as though you are playing without Keith tuners and hence must fake the tuner part; if you have Keith or Scruggs tuners, by all means use them. Note also that the chord structure of the first break is slightly different from the others: In the A part, measure 8 (which is measure 7 if you ignore the introductory measure), the I chord (G) is held and leads into the V chord (D) in the next measure. In all the other breaks, the equivalent of measure 7 is a II chord (A) that leads into the V chord (D). Yep, that's the way Earl wrote, recorded, and played it.
