Notes: Did you know that there are three parts to Gold Rush, the classic instrumental written by Bill Monroe and Byron Berline? In most jams the tune comprises only two parts. Even in the original recording, Monroe’s mandolin break and Vic Jordan’s banjo break include only the first two parts, whereas Berline’s fiddle break includes the third part near the end of the track. There is a nice video of Berline in his shop in Oklahoma demonstrating all 3 parts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y8sStWw7Po, and I have based the tablature on his third part in the video.
