Genre: Bluegrass Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs) Key: C Tuning: Drop C (gCGBD) Difficulty: Expert

Notes: My arrangement of this traditional folk song, which has been recorded by pickers as diverse as Pete Seeger and Earl Scruggs. The first and third breaks should be played slowly, in the chordal style employing triplets, and you will probably need to employ the MIDI function on TablEdit to hear what they should sound like, because they way they look in tablature does not resemble how they sound. I like to play the second break at a faster tempo, and the contrast between the slow and fast breaks makes a more interesting arrangement, I think. The tablature shows the arrangement in drop C tuning, although it could be played just as easily in standard G tuning.
