bluegrass jam tracks

This is a set of 55 MP3 audio tracks designed for beginning and intermediate players. Set consists of 17 songs at multiple speeds. The download also includes a 12 page PDF booklet with the chord progressions which I prepared in easy-to-read form.

The total playing time is 2 hours and 8 minutes. Each song repeats multiple times and the average track is around 2.5 minutes.

When you are learning to play it is often difficult to find really good musicians to play with you at the slow to moderate speeds you need. This collection solves that problem. And the entire collection costs less than one private lesson from a teacher!

These tracks can be used to practice playing chords or solos with a first-class bluegrass groove. The tracks were recorded by professionals and include guitar, mandolin and bass. Frequent use of these tracks will improve the playing of any banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro or bass player.

Click these links to download some example tracks at a variety of tempos:

Free Sample Track 1 (Nice and slow)

Free Sample Track 2 (A little peppier)

Free Sample Track 3 (Moderate but not burning!)

The tracks are professional, studio recordings and are high quality stereo MP3 files at 44.1 kHz (CD quality). Listen to them on a good set of headphones or a quality stereo system to really appreciate them. They work on tiny iPhone and tablet speakers but you will love them over a good system!
