Notes: This is my attempt to capture Scruggs's break on a youtube recording, presumably from an Opry radio broadcast, of Flatt and Scruggs with Stringbean, posted on BHO by Dick Bowden. As Dick points out, Scruggs did not play a break on the original recording of RoOK with Bill Monroe on 27 October 1947. So it is a delight to hear his take on the break. The quality of the live recording is not great, however, and it is hard to hear exactly what Scruggs is doing. So wade in at your peril.

Thank you, Jack. I am really glad that Dick Bowden posted it on BHO -- I have often wondered what Earl's break would sound like.

Oh it's a pretty simple break. I tabbed it out for teaching years ago...Nice work though....
