Notes: BtFM is a neat tune by Johnny Warren and Charlie Cushman, from their album "Purely Instrumental." Charlie Cushman is one of the foremost current practitioners of driving Scruggs-style banjo, and in my opinion he captures Scruggs’s nuances, touch, and tone as well as anybody (and better than most). The tab is not strictly faithful to his version, although I did try to render parts of it note-for-note.

I have learned that Bill Evans published a nice tablature of the tune in Banjo Newsletter, October 2015. Bill’s tab captures Cushman’s breaks note-for-note, whereas my tab is more my interpretation of the tune.
