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.
