Big Sandy River, Bill Monroe (Intermediate)

Big Sandy River is a Kenny Baker/Bill Monroe composition that you probably recognize from the album Kenny Baker plays Bill Monroe. This tab is one break and one tag. The original melody has been stylized to suit the guitar better with hammer-ons and pull-offs, open chord arpeggios and chromaticism. A good choice for the solidly intermediate player.

Big Sandy River is a Kenny Baker/Bill Monroe composition that you probably recognize from the album Kenny Baker plays Bill Monroe. This tab is one break and one tag. The original melody has been stylized to suit the guitar better with hammer-ons and pull-offs, open chord arpeggios and chromaticism. A good choice for the solidly intermediate player.

(Intermediate guitar tabs include an ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above, and more often than not, a kick-off and a tag. Where the beginning guitar tabs had quarter notes expect there to now be a steady stream of eighth notes! These tabs, though more difficult than the beginning tabs, do not stray far from the melody like the advanced guitar tabs. Intermediate tabs without a bluegrass kick-off or tag generally come from other traditions such as Irish Fiddle Music (Frank’s Reel) or Spanish Folk Songs (La Borrachita).)
