Note about the use of tablature: Pete recommends tablature as an aid to learning specific content, and not as a primary means to master the fundamentals of Scruggs style banjo. That combination of ear skills and timing skills is best developed with minimal use of tablature. See Pete’s advice on how that’s done.
