For the first phase of the new beginner jam, we will, for the first half of the night, play only songs on the 'Top 20' list and only in the keys specified for each song on that list (see the attachments). For the second half of the night, people are welcome to call any beginner-friendly bluegrass songs that they would like to play at the jam, and with most of the 'key' restrictions removed, including for songs that are on the Top 20 list. (I will explain this in greater detail at the jam.) To give a clearer idea of what kinds of songs tend to be beginner-friendly at a bluegrass jam, I have also attached here, in addition to the Top 20 list, another list of songs titled '30 Additional Jam-Friendly Songs'. Most of these songs will at some point be introduced into the beginner jam repertoire.
