Today we are going to learn how to play "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" as made famous by Flatt and Scruggs in 1968. This song is a bluegrass instrumental classic with all the iconic elements: double time, upbeat, fast acoustic guitar picking & grinning at its best as well as a standard in the bluegrass repertoire.

In this tutorial we'll learn the intro, the rhythm guitar, the slide solo, and the outro. The song is in the key of G major and is in 4/4 time with a quarter note of 150 (cut-time), effectively 300 BPM!
