Notes: This is a fine old Flatt and Scruggs chestnut. Lester really cranked up his singing on this one, and the Bluegrass Album Band also does an excellent version with Tony Rice on the vocal. I have tabbed my interpretation of Earl Scruggs's break and of J. D. Crowe's break (with the BGAB). Scruggs's break shows his genius for capturing the melody without always relying on cliched licks or rolls. Crowe's break is derived from Scruggs's, but departs from it in subtle ways. Both are worth learning.
