Juneau Bluegrass Slow Jam

Bluegrass Slow Jam – 7pm – 1st Sunday of the Month @ the Alaskan Bar

Bluegrass Repertoire

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but these are some standard songs that we’ll be playing in the jam. This is a good place to start, but please feel free to bring your own songs/tunes as long as they are bluegrass “standards” or stick to a basic chord and rhythm structure in the bluegrass style.

Remember, while many fiddle tunes have set keys, singing songs should be sung and played in the key that is best for the singer’s voice. This means that all of these songs may be played in different keys at the jam, depending on who is singing. We’ll try and stick to more “friendly” keys (C, D, G, A) but we’ll likely be playing in B, Bb, E, and F as well.

All links point to Jim’s Roots & Blues which is a great resource. These are all songs (i.e. they’re sung) so these links connect to lyrics and chord charts. The chord charts used refer to the numbers in the “Nashville Numbering System”.

You can also tune in to our Spotify playlist which is regularly updated with the songs played each month.

The “Nashville Numbering System” is a short-hand way for musicians to quickly understand the structure of any song/tune regardless of key. This is an invaluable tool and will be how we talk about songs in the jam. Learn it here!
