Wreck of the Old 97

Banjo Tab PDF + MP3

Style: Scruggs-style/Tom Adams-style 3-finger banjo playing
Key of G, G Tuning, gDGBD. 51 measures

Details: The tab contains 3 banjo breaks. The 1st Break is based on Earl Scruggs' playing on the 1962 version of the song by Flatt & Scruggs. The 2nd Break shows how Tom Adams has played the tune for many years, having learned it from Flatt & Scruggs, but not playing it note for note. The 3rd Break is a variation played in a style compatible with the first two breaks. The melody is still plainly evident while the note choices that differ from the melody will tastefully complement an earlier solo. Recommended to be played not as a kickoff to the song but later in the song once the melody has been firmly established.

Tom demonstrates all 3 breaks on the MP3.
