Adams County Breakdown

Banjo Tab PDF + MP3

Tom's signature original banjo tune recorded first with the Johnson Mountain Boys (1987) and later for the debut album by the Lynn Morris Band (1989).

This tab is Tom's transcription of his 3 breaks plus the ending as played on the accompanying MP3 released in 1990 by the Lynn Morris Band. The track features a young Ronnie McCoury on mandolin on one of his first recordings.

Straight-ahead Scruggs-style playing from 3-time IBMA Banjo Player of the Year Tom Adams and named for his native Adams County, Pennsylvania.

Covered by banjoist/radio personality Ned Luberecki on his 2017 album Take Five.
