New Song Lists
Included in the attachments are two new song lists for the jam which are intended to replace the lists that were used for the jam between September and December 2019.
The first list (titled 'Beginner Bluegrass Jam - Jan. - June 2020 - Main List') consists of 20 of the 26 songs that were on the previous main list, plus 10 more songs that I intend on making songs of the week between now and the beginning of June. This list of 30 songs is the list that we will play from for the first half of the evening.
The second list (titled 'Beginner Bluegrass Jam - Jan. - June 2020 - Additional Songs') consists of the 6 songs that have removed from the main list (Beautiful Brown Eyes, Boil The Cabbage Down, Little Birdie, My Home's Across The Blue Ridge Mountains, Nine Pound Hammer, and Shortnin' Bread), and 24 other songs that would be appropriate to call during the second half of the evening for the stage that the beginner jam is now at. Keep in mind that this list, taken together with the main list, is only representative of the kinds of songs that are appropriate for the jam; it is far from being exhaustive.
Also included in the attachments is the Basic Chord Progressions handout that the song lists are keyed to, and Nashville Number System charts for converting the number names of chords to their letter names for the keys that songs are played in at the jam. No changes have been made to these handouts.
