New Book for Slow Jammers

Posted by Eddie Collins on Wednesday, November 7, 2007

Bluegrass Jammers’ Top 10 is for those who favor Beginner, or Slow Jams. Successful jamming happens when everyone plays in time, maintaining smooth transitions from rhythm to soloing and back. To do this, awkward pick-up notes and difficult eighth-note passages have been stripped from the solos in this book and only simple chords are used.

Each song is laid out such that all the music notation, tab, chords and lyrics for Fiddle, Mandolin, Banjo and Guitar appear on open-face, easy-to-read, adjoining pages. The slow track for each tune on the Practice CD is performed at a speed that allows everyone to comfortably go from soloing to rhythm and back to soloing. Each song is then performed at a relaxed group speed. All songs have lyrics, so the non-soloists can join in as well.  See the Books section of www.eddiecollins.biz for more info.

Murphy Henry and Peter Wernick also have excellent DVDs for slow jammers too and they are not just for bluegrass pickers or banjo players. A space for a solo is included in most tunes hopalong peter
