Slow Jam Notes 7.15.17
Early Bird Bluegrass Slow Jam at Apple Mountain Music
As always, thanks to everyone that showed up to play. We always seem to get the right number for that room. Some really good jam tunes got called today. We jammed on Mountain Dew
My Home’s Across The Blue Ridge Mountains
I’ll Fly Away
Whiskey Before Breakfast
White Freight Liner
I Am A Pilgrim.
It was a good combination of songs and fiddle tunes. If you want to jam with groups, you gotta make sure you know your chords for fiddle tunes. Cherokee Shuffle and Whiskey Before Breakfast are complex in their chord progressions, so they are good ones to practice. I would consider Blackberry Blossom and Arkansas Traveler to be in the same category.
Next Early Bird Bluegrass Slow Jam will be meeting Second Saturday in August.
The room is booked for the jam 9-10am. I’ll sometimes go a little over if we can get a few more tunes in. We start up pretty much on time.
If you want to join us, you are welcome to.
