Notes: The classic fiddle tune, Turkey In The Straw, arranged for flatpicking guitar. There are 4 breaks. The first is the easiest, and is based loosely upon Don Reno's recording of the tune ("The Golden Guitar Of Don Reno). The second break is my standard break to the tune, and in the first part is a "perpetual motion" take on the tune consisting of 8th notes for the whole break. Also, for all breaks except the first, there is a slightly modified chord progression, which was "invented" by a fiddler friend & I and we like to play it this way; it can be easily modified to the standard version. The 3rd break is just another variation on the basic melody. The 4th break is the same as the 2nd, but features twin guitars. The 2nd part is not tooo hard, so give it a try with your flatpicking pal! Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun!
