Sally Goodin’ is my favorite fiddle tune. An excellent version of Sally Goodin’ is by Byron Berline with Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs.
There were some hard feelings between Monroe and Scruggs after Flatt & Scruggs left the Bluegrass Boys to form their own group. However, Berline was able to get the two bluegrass legends together to record this great fiddle tune.
Often recorded as an instrumental, this version starts off with Earl picking by himself, then Bill comes in with his vocals and mandolin. After a minute, it builds with the full band coming in and Byron Berline turning in a masterful performance on his fiddle.by
