Notes: This is my transcription of Flatt&Scruggs recording of "Down the Road". I transcribed the intro and all six breaks plus the ending lick. Comparing the breaks with each other is interesting because of the many very small variations Earl adds each time he plays the theme.

Love this! Interesting to see all the variations as well as the time signature changes. Earl truly was a musical law unto himself.
