Information on Big Sciota courtesy of The Traditional Tune Archive.
This is a jam classic and a must know for every bluegrass guitar player, don’t be the odd one out at the jam that doesn’t know it! This tab is the intermediate version of this classic melody, that means two A’s and two B’s of attainable slick bluegrass break. You’ll find more variations to the original melody, a second break up the octave and a tag to finish this tune off at your next bluegrass jam!
(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).)
