Discuss the Banjo lesson: Cumberland Gap



This is an old, old folk song made very popular on the banjo by Mr. Earl Scruggs. This version is similar to Earl’s, but also adds a couple twists and turns to set it apart.


WOW… To get measure 18 to sound clear is tough. My pinky mutes the first string. If I rotate my hand down for a more straight on attack I can get it clear but Boy its tough… lol
