This is a list of songs that we are working on as a club collectively. We will start each jam session with three groups working on these songs, beginner’s will work on correct chord structure, intermediate group will focus on playing the melody breaks, and the advanced group will work on improvising over the melody. These songs will give new members a chance to work on songs they know will be played at our events and those who want to practice learning to solo instead of just playing chords. We will add 3 new songs (a waltz, a vocal and an instrument song) every 4 months so we will have 10 new songs a year to play together.
These songs will also be chosen on the popularity of songs played at bluegrass festival jams so you’ll have a common core to start with. Click the links to view/download sheet music and tab for these songs and check the link to YouTube for an example of the correct way to play each song and melody. Good luck!
