Notes: This is my interpretation of how Earl Scruggs played this tune on the "Foggy Mountain Banjo" album. All lead breaks and backup are included. The tab is written such that you can follow along with the recording. Chords are notional, i.e. not necessarily exactly what the banjo is playing at any given moment, but what I think the basic chords are for the general tune, for each bar. Adjust settings so that chords are displayed as letter names only, tab is displayed at 4 bars per line, and view is scaled to 16th notes. The first few blank measures are there to maintain the chord & bar patterns (4 bars per phrase) such that each phrase starts at the beginning of a line.

excellent tab sir! If I may put in a request? A complete tab for the Osborne Bros Rocky Top would be awesome!

I think you can go to my home page and there should be a “Tabs” link on there somewhere.
