Notes: This is not the version of Shady Grove in a minor key that might be played by a folk singer with a dulcimer – not that there’s anything wrong with that! Instead this is the bare-bones hard-driving bluegrass version in a major key, as played by, among others, Bill Monroe (on the CD “Bluegrass Masters, from the Newport Festivals”), Flatt and Scruggs (on vol. 9 of the DVD “Flatt and Scruggs TV Shows”), and Doyle Lawson (on the eponymously titled CD “Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver”). I have tabbed 2 breaks, with lots of improvisation in the breaks, including a Fleck-ism at the end of the second break.
