Notes: In the multi-CD set "Newport Folk Festival: Best of Bluegrass 1959-66," Don Stover played a great break to Flint Hill Special employing a descending melody on the fourth string. It reminds me of a ball bouncing down a staircase ("descending Victorian stairs," a line from Jesse Winchester), and I refer to it as Stover's Staircase break. The repetitive right-hand pattern is 4-2-1-2. I have tabbed out an approximation of Stover's Staircase break here, and you can find a variation of the Staircase break in my tab to FMB elsewhere on BHO.
