Notes: Scruggs's break to BRCH is one of his classics. In its deceptive simplicity and elegance it ranks up there with his break to "No Mother or Dad," in my opinion -- it is a break in which he really plays the words. The first break by Scruggs is my attempt to capture his recorded version with Lester Flatt, and the second break is an amalgam of variations I have heard on various radio and concert recordings by Flatt and Scruggs. The next 2 breaks are my own, with some elements based on Bill Keith's playing. Flatt and Scruggs recorded BRCH in B flat; so capo up 3 if you want to play along with the recording.
