Notes for Wagon Wheel: This song is a must know for any bluegrass musician. Up there with Man of Constant Sorrow, Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Dueling Banjos, this song has definitely contributed to bringing bluegrass to new audiences.
This chord progression is also used in hundreds of other songs so it’s a great way to practice your standard chords.
For this break, I’ve mixed of Scruggs and Melodic styles to give the solo a fresh flavor while still playing at the melody. This break could work as a kick-off to the song or as a solo within the song. There’s tons of licks in this tune that could be stolen and used in any of your favorite songs!
