Tired of pickin’ in G? Good…me too, so this week we’re gonna learn Beaumont Rag in the key of C using some Scruggs-style licks. I really like the B part, where we’ll really employ those inside rolls to make folks’ ears tingle!

Ben, I have been playing Beaumont Rag for a long time. I am also playing Country Roads. I am taking measure 20 and 21 from Beaumont Rag and finishing the chorus of country roads (last C measure “Take me home Country roads”) with those measures fretting the last G at two. Sound pretty good - to me but I don"t know… Does that work for anyone else?

Can you post a video Ron. I recorded Beaumont Rag a few years back but the timing was awful keep meaning to go back and rework it.

No camera on my computer. No microphone either. Not that tech savvy

I think that would sound wonderful!

Ron - “No camera. No mic.”
