Anyone know what Jason Davis is doing here right at the 1:32 mark, leading from the I chord back to the V chord? Neat little syncopated hiccup lick.
Thanks for any help.
Hi Allan. Here’s what I get : first he does a standard Scruggs tag lick, then he does this one to segue into the D. It’s like the Scruggs double hammer lick in the last line of Earl’s Breakdown , except he hammers 1st to 2nd fret on the third string instead of 2nd to 3rd fret. You can also leave out the 5th string note and just do the double hammers.

Thanks for taking the time, Chuck. Appreciate it.
Did you ever get this lick figured out? He also uses this lick to go from the 1 to the 5 in his version of Darbys Castle.
notice chord changes

Jason Davis Second Time Around. It's from Russell Sawler. I highly recommend his tabs and books. They're note for note. I bought the book for Darbys Castle but have learned so much more from it.
Russell is spot on with his tabs. I’ve bought a few from him also.
I have a lot of his JD Crowe tabs. The Bluegrass Album Band set has taught me more about JDs playing than anything else.
Ya,, there’s stuff in those tabs that I’d probably never think up on my own
The SPGMA conventions seem to produce a lot of good bluegrass videos. I am always surprised by the sound quality. In fact, I often study these versions of a tune before I start learning how to play a tune. Then, I play along with the video.
I can take a "break" and play backup. Backup playing skills deteriorate quickly when they are not used on a regular basis.
I agree about the SPBGMA videos. Here's a video I took of a late night jam in the hallway a couple years ago. These young musicians were just having fun but were some of the best I've heard.
