The PineCone Bluegrass learning jam at Harry’s Guitar Shop on the third Wednesday of the month has been very popular, welcoming beginner musicians and people who want to learn basic jam etiquette before jumping into a traditional jam. This month’s featured songs will be “Salt Creek” and “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” (download chord sheets for January 2017 learning jam).
This jam is specifically for those who are learning the basics of bluegrass music and playing with other musicians, and it is open to all ages. Jef Walter, a local musician who plays bass and guitar with Charles Pettee & the Iron Mountain Messengers, will once again facilitate this month’s jam to assist jam participants.
Other songs played at past learning jams include:
- Old Joe Clark
- Nine Pound Hammer
- My Home’s Across the Blue Ridge Mountains
- In the Pines
- Amazing Grace
- Whiskey Before Breakfast
- Ashokan Farewell
- Salt Creek
