Notes: In memory of Earl Scruggs, here is one of my favorites of Scruggs's breaks. If you pay attention to the nuances of the right hand patterns, you will see that Scruggs did not approach picking patterns in a formulaic way. He played the melody notes and found rhythm notes to flesh out the melody, without being strictly tied to the rolls that so many of us learned from his recordings.

Am I missing something as a newbie? Where's the TAB?

In the left column on the BHO main page, click “Learn.” In the window that opens up, click “Banjo Tab Library.” Type in the title in the space above “Advanced Search,” and voila! It will appear.
