‘Cabin in Caroline’
This classic bluegrass song is quite popular on stage as well as in the field. It is credited to
the great bluegrass duo, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. I think one of the most appealing
parts about this tune is its happy lyrics, straightforward melody line, and uncomplicated lyrics.
The solos really liven up a simple tune like this.
Performance Notes:
1. The song starts out with a very positive sounding banjo break. The back up for the
Dobro should be the standard Basic Rhythm.
2. During the Verse, you can continue the Basic Rhythm, playing it low and in the back
ground keeping your instrument as a supporting role.
3. The Chorus of the song lends itself well to some tasty Dobro fills at measures 20 and
24. Of course, these are not the only possibilities, you may wish to experiment with
other fills and possible scale runs. What is presented here is only a suggestion.
These two collections of Flatt & Scruggs music is a complete library of bluegrass classics.

‘Big Sandy’
The legendary fiddler, Kenny Baker and Bill Monroe are credited to this tune that is about the
creek, Big Sandy. Another ‘Creek’ tune! The album, ‘Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe’ should
be a must have in your CD collection.
I am not a big fan of ‘fiddle tunes’ but this one is an exception. It has a nice melody line and
flows nicely on the Dobro. Dobro players often times neglect fiddle tunes but this instrumental
sounds great anytime in a group jam session.
Performance Notes:
1. The opening statement is called a ‘rake’ as indicated by the series of ‘xxxxx’ on the
tablature. This is played by raising the bar slightly so that it only touches the first string,
the ‘5’. The left side of the Left Hand will mute the rest of the strings as the Right Hand
thumb strums through all 6 strings.
2. Measure 2 is a good example of the Melodic Style. This is a short G scale run using a
different string for each note. The advantage to this is that the notes will blend in nicely
with each other. It is also used at measures 6, 10 and 14.

‘Arkansas Traveler’
"The Arkansas Traveler" was the state song of Arkansas from 1949 to 1963, and has been
the state historical song since 1987.
Up to this point, we have only been playing songs in the Keys of G and A.
Now, we will shift gears into the Key of D. This is not a very popular key for Bluegrass
players, plays well on the Dobro.
Some songs, like ‘Arkansas Traveler’ are always played in a certain key; in this case, it is D,
which is very popular with Fiddle players.
Performance Notes:
1. Since this is a Fiddle Tune, the original melody line uses many eighth notes in series.
This presents a special challenge for the Dobro. What I like to do, and is reflected in
this arrangement is to focus on the chords to the song as much as possible. The
number of notes played is not as important as the harmonic structure of the tune. The
first three measures focus on the chord progression more than the actually melody.
Compare measures 1 thru 3 with the arrangements for the mandolin and fiddle.
2. Measure 7 is a good exercise using pull offs.
3. The Chorus, starting with measure 9 to the end is another example of using chords
and harmony for a melody line that is normally played with straight eighth notes, like
the fiddle version. Using this method, you should be able to pick up the tempo and
keep up with most seasoned fiddle players.

‘Precious memories’
‘Precious Memories’ is a traditional Gospel hymn credited to J.B.F. Wright in 1925. However,
records indicate the song may have been around as early as 1877. It has been performed by
a wide variety of famous recording artists including Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, The
Edwin Hawkins Singers, and Bob Dylan.
Performance Notes:
1. This song has a professional twist; it starts out in the Key of C, then after the Dobro
break, modulates to the higher Key of D. On the Dobro solo, this will be at measure 17
with the A chord. This is called the ‘pivot’ chord. It’s easy to find. If you are going to
modulate to a new key, simply find the V chord (5 chord) of the new Key, then place it
before the key change. In this case, the V chord in the Key of D is A (or A7), so we
simply place it in front of the new key change, and it makes for a smooth and rather
professional sounding transition. As another example, if we wanted to go to the Key of
E, what would the pivot chord be? It would be ‘B’, since it is the V chord in the Key of
E.
2. Because this song is slower, it will be easier to think ahead of the fills that are used
during the vocal break.
3. Most of the fills will be based on block chords. There are a couple of special ‘bending’
techniques used to create a pedal steel guitar sound, in particular, measures 7, 15 and
22. The Right Hand Ring Finger will pre-bend the second string (in measure 7) so
sound like the 13th fret. However, the bar will remain straight at the 12th fret. The Ring
Finger will then, gently release the string letting it relax into its normal pitch at the 12th
fret. Keep the execution of this note as smooth as possible to emulate the sound of the
pedal steel guitar. Listen to the recording a few times to get the feel for this technique.
You can also see this on the video presentation, Dobro Volume 1 on the song,

4. The Dobro solo, beginning at measure 66, should stay connected and played as
smoothly as possible. Triplets are used, beginning with measure 71. A triplet is a set of
three notes played on one count. Again, listen to the recording for the interpretation of
this technique.

‘Orange Blossom Special’
The Orange Blossom Special was a named passenger train service operated by the
Seaboard Air Line Railway between New York City, New York and Miami, Florida.
Inaugurated in January of 1925, the service was the brainchild of SAL president S. Davies
Warfield, who wanted to capitalize on the booming development that was taking place in
Florida at the time.
Warfield believed that Florida was a land of opportunity, and with the addition of fast,
luxurious train travel, he could lure influential and wealthy business leaders to the Sunshine
State. He was spurred on by the success of Henry Flagler and his Florida East Coast
Railway in attracting travelers to the southeast.
This song was written in 1938 by trick fiddler, ‘Ervin T Rouse’ and made famous by traveling
musician, Chubby Wise. The song’s evocation of train sounds and speed has been
interpreted in every musical form and performed on festival stages from New York to San
Francisco and around the world. It is one of the most performed songs of the 20th century.
Performance Notes:
1. Although this a ‘war horse’ of a Fiddle tune, the Dobro gets a good shot at it and really
shines on it as well. The opening statement, measures 1 thru 12, is reminiscent of a
train whistle. This effect works well on the Dobro.
2. Part B, measures 13 thru 20 are based on the trick fiddling that the crowd always
enjoys. The Dobro gets a good break using banjo roll patterns. The tricky thing about
this passage is the speed. You will want to be cautious to keep your notes as clean as
possible so the solo will sparkle and not sound slurred.
3. Measures 21 thru 24 and 29 thru 32 offer a heavy dose of the Melodic G scale. This
passage alone will make a great daily exercise. It can be used in a variety of settings
and songs.

‘Big Mon’
The title reflects back to the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe.
Performance Notes:
1. Instead of starting on the A part like a normal song, each instrument will enter their
solo on the B part. I cannot think of too many songs that do this, but most bands
approach it this way.
2. This solo arrangement presents a good workout with hammer-ons and pull-offs.

‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown’
‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown’ is a famous bluegrass banjo instrumental by the seminal
bluegrass artists Flatt and Scruggs. It is used as background music in the 1967 motion
picture Bonnie and Clyde, especially in the car chase scenes. It has been used in a similar
manner in many other pictures and television programs, particularly when depicting a pursuit
scene in a rural setting.
It was written by Earl Scruggs and recorded in 1949 by Flatt and Scruggs and the Foggy
Mountain Boys, with Scruggs playing a Gibson Granada 5-string banjo. It is closely related to
Bill Monroe's "Bluegrass Breakdown" which Earl helped to write. It featured the same opening
double hammer on, but "Bluegrass Breakdown" goes to an F chord whereas Foggy Mountain
Breakdown goes to the G chord's relative, an E Minor.
In 2004, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added
to the National Recording Registry.
Performance Notes:
1. The first solo for the Dobro is mostly melody oriented with strategic slides to create a
bluesy style.
2. The second solo is closer to the way the Banjo plays its opening break. There are
many passages in this second break that mimic the Banjo’s styling of this great song.

‘Mama don’t ‘low’
This fun tune is great to play on Mother’s Day (USA) or your favorite Mom’s birthday.
Each instrument is highlighted after being introduced as something ‘Mama Don’t ‘Low’.
Between each comment, that particular instrument will play a small part and then kick into a
nice solo featuring the musicianship of that picker.
Performance Notes:
1. During the vocal part, the Dobro will play some strategic fills to give anticipation to the
audience.
2. Many parts of the Dobro solo are based on Banjo style rolls and licks, similar to ‘Foggy
Mountain Breakdown’ and ‘Train 45’. Measure 34 to the end is built upon a blues/rock
style of hammer-ons and pull-offs. These can be used in other songs and
arrangements.
For more fun when you play this song live for Mom, you can add more verses like, ‘Mama
Don’t ‘Low:
• Hand Clapping
• Foot Stomping
• Bluegrass Singing
• Heavy Metal Music (I usually throw in a short break of ‘Smoke on the Water’. See the
video of our band doing this at www.jaybuckey.com/video_showcase.htm
Alternatively, you can do whatever else you think ‘Mom Don’t ‘Low’. Be prepared for an
encore!

‘Black mountain rag’
This is another crowd-pleasing song much like ‘Orange Blossom Special’ and is a favorite
with Fiddle players. It is often banned in fiddle contests because of its tricky style of fiddling.
This break makes the Dobro a crowd-pleaser with a sparkling solo with some dandy
hammers, pulls and slide techniques.
Performance notes:
1. There are not many surprises on this one. The Dobro solo is based on roll patterns
blended with well placed hammers, pulls and slides. Keep all of these special
techniques clean and clear.
The bluegrass festival in Blythe, AZ has become on of the most popular in America with
many top-notch performers on the program. http://www.blythebluegrass.com

‘Man of constant sorrow’
‘Man of Constant Sorrow’ is a traditional American folk song.
The song was first made famous by the Stanley Brothers. The song appears on Bob Dylan's
1962 eponymous debut album and Dylan performed the song during his first national
television appearance in 1963. Another version was recorded in 1962 by Peter, Paul and
Mary on their self-titled album as the track "Sorrow".
The song appears in the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? Performed by the fictitious
Soggy Bottom Boys in the movie, it was recorded by Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat
Enright. It was a hit in the movie for the Soggy Bottom Boys and later became a hit single in
real life. This was the only song on the soundtrack to receive an award or to chart; it received
a CMA for "Single of the Year" and a Grammy for "Best Country Collaboration with Vocals"
and it peaked at #38 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
My arrangement is very close to the movie soundtrack.
Performance notes:
1. The Dobro will use roll patterns for the back up on verses 1 and 3
2. The solo is not difficult, but keep it clean, especially the slides. Measures 34 and 35
use a full-chord slide from frets 3 to 5. Keep those very clean and solid.

‘Angel band’
’Angel Band’ is an American gospel music song originally titled "My Latest Sun Is Sinking
Fast". The song was written by William Bradbury (words), Jefferson Haskell (music), and first
appeared in J. W. Dadmun's Melodeon in 1860. The song has been recorded by numerous
artists, probably the most famous was by The Stanley Brothers, and probably the most
unusual by The Monkees.
Performance Notes:
1. Because the tempo of this song is slower, the back up will be easier to execute and
allow you to think ahead. Much of the back up is based on block chords.
2. The Dobro solo is straight-forward with few surprises. Keep the slides clean so that all
of the notes come through clearly.

‘Train 45’
This great banjo tune is normally played in the Key of B. This arrangement will be played in
the key of G with the capo at the 4th fret. This will raise the pitch to B.
As a group, we used to play this tune near the end of one of our sets, I would usually go nuts
on the mandolin or fiddle, and we always had a good response from the crowd. Sometimes
we would change the chords to the chorus and rename the song to, ‘Drain 45’. You can see
how we played this in the concert footage of the Marty Warburton Band on the ‘Video
Showcase’ at www.jaybuckey.com
Performance Notes:
1. The opening statement is a duel between the Mandolin and Dobro. It will really peak
the interest of your listeners.
2. Most of the Dobro solo is based on banjo style rolls, hammers, pulls and slides. Be
careful of the shifting Right Hand patterns at measures 29 thru 32. It looks harder than
it really is. The timing of the notes is critical for a clear and smooth sound.
The CD, ‘Double Trouble’ is an excellent source to hear John Hickman play this song.
