North Carolina Breakdown -- Variations

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: A  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate
Posted by corcoran, updated: 8/5/2018
Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: You can learn a lot from the variations various banjo pickers come up with to depart from conventional arrangements of tunes. Here are 2 variations of Sammy Shelor’s tune North Carolina Breakdown. The first variation is the way I hear the improvisations he plays on his recording of the tune. The second variation is mine.

North Carolina Breakdown

Genre: Bluegrass  Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)   Key: A  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Download: TABLEDIT

Notes: NCB is a really nice tune by Sammy Shelor, punchy banjoist extraordinaire. It starts out like Cumberland Gap but then goes off into uncharted territory. It is not to be confused with the tune of the same name by Fiddlin’ Arthur Smith and performed by Flatt and Scruggs on one of the DVDs of their Martha White tv show. The anatomy of the tune is AABB, and you should capo up 2 to play in the key of A.

Super Mario World Athletic Theme

Download: TABLEDIT | TABLEDIT | PDF | PDF

Notes: The tab is split into 2 parts because Tabledit doesn't let unregistered versions save over 16 measures in a single file (also: there's that annoying watermark). There's both the PDF and the Tabledit files. Note that this is only the "B section" of the song - the first section of the song is more of a Scruggs-style melody, which I haven't learned yet.

Notes: This is adapted from a tab by Lynn Williams, comprising a few more melodic passages. The right hand fingering is crucial where stated. A cute little tune with only two chords in D. Remember to spike the 5th string to A [tuning =aDGBD]
