Jam Tunes

​Jam Events

A "jam" is a gathering of musicians who take turns selecting songs for everyone to play together. It is an opportunity for fun and growth. We generally select from the music listed on this page. Access the music by clicking on "pdf" or "link" for each tune. Easier tunes are marked with * to the right of the title. All acoustic instruments are welcome!

Feel free to download and play this tab, and to link to it, but please do not take the PDFs to post on your own websites or print and share with others with the following exception:

You may only copy or share our original tab (PDFs on our website that are by Martha, Ray, Sue, Natalie, or Chad) for use in your jams. We are happy to have you enjoy those arrangements!
