Under the Double Eagle Intermediate TAB
This transcription is based on the arrangement by Norman Blake on his Whiskey Before Breakfast CD.
One of the first and best flatpicking guitar albums was put out by Norman Blake - Whiskey Before Breakfast.
This is where I first learned the fine art of flatpicking guitar. Norman was and still is one of the best flatpickers around and he is surely a ground-breaking musician.
One of the cuts from that album is Under the Double Eagle and Norman has a great arrangement of that classic song.
The transcription shown herewith is based on his arrangement, but over the years I have added my own flavor to the break.
This break has quite a few ornamental notes shown, which dress-up the arrangement, but they do make it more difficult to learn the piece. You would be best off to learn the break without the hammer-ons first and then add them as you gain speed and accuracy. These hammer-ons are located in measures 2, 3, 4 and 5, and again in measures 10, 11 and 12.
Other than the hammer-ons and a an eighth note triplet sequence, this is quite a straight-forward break. Keep an eye on the chord forms above the notation score as there are a lot of pick-strum type of passages in this break. Upon reaching the end, you can go back to the beginning and play the PartA a couple of times again.
