Watch the Breakdown 17 - 21 online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Roots, Rags & Blues

I remember going to fiddler's conventions like Union Grove when I was growing up in North Carolina. Bugle Call Rag was a favorite. One musician I heard at Union Grove in the late 1960's was Babe Stovall, who performed a repertoire of Delta Blues on an old, beat up National Steel guitar which he played behind his head while dancing to attract a crowd. Based in New Orleans, Babe is said to have been the inspiration for Jerry Jeff Walker's Mr. Bojangles. That same year I remember hearing Doc and Merle playing out in the parking lot late at night, where there were about half a dozen people gathered 'round. I'll never forget that!

The alternate voicings in measures 1 and 2 are created by a descending melody in the upper note of each chord. In measures 3 and 4 an ascending bass line is fleshed out to create each chord. These ascending chord voicings emphasize the interval of a 10th, played on the 6th and 4th strings.
