Here's an exciting way to increase your repertoire of old time tunes and gain confidence when you join in the sessions at parties, festivals, camps and other musical events. Bruce, Cathy, Marcy and Joe play these thirteen instrumentals up to speed for those ready to jam and at half speed for the sake of beginning/intermediate pickers who want to play along at a more relaxed tempo. The repertoire includes both standards and some less well-known but important tunes. Whether your instrument is fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass or guitar, this play-along CD will help move your playing to the next step. Fiddle and banjo tunings are included along with suggested chords and notes on the sources of each tune.
Tunes: "Susananna Gal," "Tennessee Gals," "Martha Campbell," "Sunny Home in Dixie," "Flatwoods," "Paddy On The Hand Car," "Wild Horse at Stoney Point," "Wild Hog in the Woods," "June Apple," "Pretty Little Widow," "Jenny on the Railroad," "Tippy Get Your Hair Cut," "Texas Gals."
The players on this CD are skilled multi-instrumentalists and long time veterans of the folk, old time and bluegrass music scenes. They have appeared on numerous recordings, both under their own names and as members of various well-known groups. In addition to performances throughout the U.S. and abroad, each is also an experienced teacher. Cathy, Marcy and Bruce have each made audio and video instructional materials for Homespun Tapes.
