Tab for East Virginia Blues
8.26.2016 You get banjo tab transcribed from:
1969 and 1971 - J.D. Crowe and the Kentucky Mountain Boys
1974, 1975 and ca. 2003-09 - J.D. Crowe and the New South
This collection of tabs will give you the opportunity to study the playing of the legendary J.D. Crowe in particular but in a more general sense you'll see and hear how professional banjo players vary the notes within their breaks. All seven breaks are clearly "East Virginia Blues" as Crowe, over a 40-year span of live recordings, builds each break on the same interpretation of the melody.
As you compare these 7 banjo breaks, you'll clearly hear the main theme stated in each break and you'll notice the various licks that are inserted that make each break unique.
2 of the 7 breaks are from performances where Crowe gets to play a second banjo break just before the final vocal verse of "East Virginia Blues". You'll hear how he takes a "hotter" solo than the one he used to open the song.
