Notes: Here is my arrangement of Bury Me Beneath the Willow. The first break is down the neck and straightforward. The second break is up the neck and is mostly in the chordal style. The third break is back down the neck and employs Keith/Scruggs tuners. TablEdit includes no simple way to indicate retuning strings, as with Keith tuners. So I have inserted text above each relevant portion of the tab to show what to do with the tuners (I did the same some time ago with “Girl’s Breakdown”). In other words, the notes in the tab corresponding to the notes played with Keith tuners are placeholders, and I used the “change note” function to sound the relevant notes in the MIDI. Thus by playing the MIDI you can hear an approximation what it sounds like to achieve melody notes by detuning and retuning a string. In my opinion this is one of the coolest effects in bluegrass banjo.
