Comments:

This breakdown from Goforth’s bluegrass phase is fast and tricky. He played four parts, which he mixed and matched. He only played the D part the second time through the tune. (The recording and transcription are structure AA B CC AA DD C B AA C). All parts except the A part have a good bit of variation. The C part goes up to a high C. Play this tune fast.
