Roanoke, Bill Monroe (Beginner)

Roanoke is a Bill Monroe composition that you probably recognize from that one traditional jam circle that plays things way too fast. This version is a very straight take on that recognizable A part melody. No flash or ornamentation, you can add that on your own after you learn this version! The B part is crosspicked making it feel more at home on the guitar. Enjoy!

(Beginning guitar tabs include a clear simple version of the melody as well as chord markings above. My tabs at this level are intended to be affordable, to the point, and no nonsense. Perfect for the beginner that wants a straightforward version of a classic melody or the intermediate to advanced player that wants to learn a melody but embellish it themselves. Some fiddle tunes are difficult enough that a beginning or even intermediate version is unavailable.)
