Notes: Sally Goodin’ was recorded first by Eck Robertson, on fiddle, in 1922 and is a favorite in jams. My tab is not a reproduction of Earl Scruggs’s classic version on banjo, which BTW is very similar to Snuffy Jenkins’s earlier version. However, in the tab you will hear the influences of banjoists such as Earl Scruggs, Bill Keith, Alan Munde, and Butch Robins, as well as Byron Berline’s arrangement on fiddle. The tune is played in the key of A. The chord progression is simple: Although you could hold the I chord (A) throughout, it is typically played with a fast turnaround to the V chord (E), and I have tabbed it that way. I hear 3 parts to Sally Goodin’, although Berline’s version includes a fourth part, a transition to the relative minor (F#m) that I have not included here.

Arrangement is good, but unfortunately transcription is wrong, whole part is moved by quarter note.
