Attached here are two copies of the new playlist for the first half of the evening for the intermediate jams in April, May, and June. The first copy of the song list is a one page larger print version of the list that gives just a quick note or two on the chord progression for each song. The second copy is a two page smaller print version of the list that gives the chord progressions in full for the songs.
The keys that are shown on the list in parentheses simply refer to the keys that the songs are most likely to be played in at the jam, due to which of the regulars and semi-regulars at the jam are most likely to lead the singing on the songs if and when they are called at the jam. This does not mean that these are the only keys that the songs may be played in during the first half of the evening at the jams.
Here are some recordings to take a listen to of songs on the new list that have never been included on any previous intermediate jam song lists:
