Big Sandy River is a Kenny Baker/Bill Monroe composition that you probably recognize from the album Kenny Baker plays Bill Monroe. It has a lot of potential for long chromatic runs, floating and crosspicking. You’ll find all of that and more in the three breaks included in this tab. Though they stick generally close to the original melody these breaks are undeniably closer to the contest style. Good luck!
(Advanced guitar tabs generally include a very ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above (with extra extensions and variations), kick-offs, tags, and improvisation that drifts far from the melody at hand. Expect to come across hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and more in all kinds of combinations as well as syncopation, triplets and other rhythmic challenges. These tabs are excellent if you want to get inside the head of another improviser and explore the choices that an advanced flatpicker might consider.)
