    Fun and relaxed, and at the same time, really focused on playing and singing, with members bringing 'jam friendly' bluegrass and country classics as well as new ones. Very organized and I'm definitely on for the next jam! Jenny G.

    Good musicians! What would you all think about picking a couple of songs that everyone really likes and making them regular numbers to get them really polished up?With our other meetup that works well to get everyone started and rolling...then we go for the new stuff...

    I might not be able to make this one, but I'll see how it goes.

    I'd look forward to leading Footprints in the Snow and Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow. My throat's in much better shape than it was at last jam; excited to harmonize.

    Hi, Jenny here: I'd like to lead Blue Ridge Mountain Home and Dim Lights, Thick Smoke -- I just posted them; looks like there's a nice mix of material uploaded!

    So for everyone else...list here to the two songs you'd like to suggest and/or lead for Tuesday's jam. If the songs aren't already in the "Files" section of our website, it would be ideal if you posted them there before Tuesday so we have time to learn the songs. If not, bring enough copies for everyone on Tuesday.

    Given the number of people we have coming and the amount of time we have to play, each person will probably only be able to lead (or suggest, if you're not comfortable leading) no more than two songs. So Bob, I'll take one of yours and add "Jordan Is a Hard Road to Travel" as my other request.

    Hi Y'all! If there's a setlist for Tuesday, could we do "Wayfaring Stranger"(OK, who printed up that format like that?), "Dark Hollow", and "Long Black Veil"? TNX!

    Jack, it looks great to me. Feel free to post more "obvious classics". We need more of the standards in our repertoire.

  • Jack M.

    I've uploaded a song, "Footprints in the Snow." Thank you, FiL, for making your template available--it was a big help. If my first contribution looks ok, and if it's ok to post such obvious classics, I'd like to maybe post a couple more before next week.

    It's a lot of work, but it's usually worth it. You really get to know a song well when you spend that much time pulling it apart. I also find that in large jams, the songs with the most accurate and easiest to read sheets tend to be the most successful.

    Jack, the short answer is no. As Andrew mentioned, there are dozens of site with lyrics and chords (my favorite is tabs.ultimate-guitar.com), but most of what you will find out there is either inaccurate or incomplete. I always look at a couple of different versions, and if there's a consensus, I know I'm close. If not, I take the most accurate parts from the various versions. Either way, I spend a lot of time listening to the song and fine-tuning the chords and lyrics.

    There are dozens of websites with lyrics and chords, such as www.bluegrasslyrics.com or www.chordie.com. The challenge is finding a version of a particular song that is both accurate and printable. I tend to copy and paste into a new Word document. I think Fil has developed a Word template, but he is clearly more advanced!

  • Jack M.

    I'd like to ask, are there favored web sites that feature lyrics and chords in the style that some of you have uploaded here in the files section?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
