Over the past couple of months, I have received some requests to record some jam videos with mandolin and/or banjo instead of guitar.
For this week's jam videos, I have taken 6 songs that were recorded on previous jam videos, and played mandolin for them instead of guitar. To make this work, for the sake of being able to play along with the videos more easily, I have played along with a click track (metronome), so that when I am playing the chop rhythm on the off-beats, it still remains clear where the down-beats are in the measures. For next week's videos, I intend on taking 6 more songs recorded on previous jam videos and playing banjo for them instead of guitar.
I hope you'll enjoy playing along with me on these songs.
Homestead On The Farm - A (104 bpm)

Homestead On The Farm
The song consistently alternates between the two progressions, starting with the chorus progression which is used for the intro break, and ending with the chorus progression for the final chorus that occurs right after the last break has been played using the verse progression.
