Bill Cheatham, Part 1: Scruggs Style
The fiddle tune “Bill Cheatham” is a bluegrass jam session favorite and, fortunately, it sits well on the banjo. You’ll learn two versions in this lesson, a Scruggs-style version you can play when the tempo is high, and a melodic-style version that is closer to the way a fiddler would play the tune. “Bill Cheatham” is played by fiddlers in the key of A, but Bill teaches it in G. To play it in A, you’ll just put the capo at the second fret. Bill walks you through the Scruggs-style version in this video.
