Hear a sample of the full band track:
This is Earl Scrugg’s most famous tune, and it is based on “Bluegrass Breakdown” which Earl always said he composed while part of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys (Earl never got credit for it). When Flatt & Scruggs left Big Mon’s band in 1948 to form their own band, Earl reworked Bluegrass Breakdown into FMB (the key difference being a slide to an Em instead of going to an F chord). It was first recorded and released in 1949.
