My take on Bela Fleck Big Country

It’s not 100% accurate but It’s close enough for me.
I’ve always wondered becase I’ve never played with a Bluegrass band when I learn tunes like this for personal enjoyment I tend to tweak them a lot to how I want it to sound, Not a rearrangement it just somehow happens sometimes in the learning process. Anyone else get this?

Are we watching the same video? It's definitely Big Country. I thought this was a good arrangement. It has a slightly different feel than the original, but I like it.

Well played, as you stated that you like to tweak tunes to suit the sound you like I can't see anything wrong with that, it was definitely Big Country, just not played by Bela Fleck, take no notice of Jack's comment as he just enjoys being a curmudgeon.

What a monotonous music we'd have, if we all played exactly the same....note for note. That was very enjoyable and nice to hear it a little differently.

Grumpy much?..... Bela has a Big Country too.


I enjoyed your version.  I have the tab for the version I linked.  It is my nemesis.
