Notes: As played by Earl Scruggs, recorded in 1958. Earl departed from his usual rolls in this short break, which he traded with the fiddle and dobro. Instead, he played most of the break in single-string style. It is exceedingly simple and stunningly effective. The song is in waltz time, with the capo on the first fret -- or perhaps Flatt and Scruggs tuned up their instruments a half step, as they tended to do in their earlier recordings. And, yes, the break comprises only 4 measures (thanks to Ken for asking!).
