Genre: Bluegrass Style: Unknown/None Chosen Key: D Tuning: EADGBE (Standard) Difficulty: Expert

Notes: This is a version of Don Reno's famed flatpick number, "Country Boy Rock & Roll", which is generally deemed to be the first bluegrass recording *featuring* Lead Flatpicked Guitar. This version has two breaks, the first one being played by a single guitar (with 1 guitar and a bass backing up) and inspired by a break I saw on a video of Don flatpicking this tune with Bill Harrell. It is, unlike the original recording (also in D), played without a capo and instead using many rather difficult closed positions. The second break is unusual, being twin guitars with a second guitar playing harmony to the first one's lead, which is exactly the same as the first break. The lead breaks are fairly difficult, as stated before, as they have a lot of closed positions and playing out of barre chords. The harmony break is a little more difficult than the lead. Have fun!
