Foggy Mountain Breakdown

Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
What, you ask, is a breakdown?

In music, a breakdown is a type of song where various instruments have solo parts, or breaks. It can take the form where all instruments play the verse together, and then several or all instruments individually repeat the verse as solo parts.

A breakdown is a popular musical style especially in bluegrass. A notable example is "Foggy Mountain Breakdown." [from Wikipedia]

One of the all-time best instrumentals. Enjoy. ~~GH
