About this title


Joining a jam session can be intimidating. This book presents everything a beginning or intermediate guitar flatpicker needs to know to participate in a jam session. There are sections that describe how jam sessions work, and jam session etiquette. The book also describes the typical chords and keys for jamming, and describes right hand usage. A section is included on the role each instrument plays in bluegrass rhythm. A play-along CD is included with 9 typical bluegrass jam tunes. The tunes are played twice: once with the tune played on the left channel and a verbal description on the right channel, and once in stereo.

About the Author:

Carl Yaffey, a multi-instrumentalist (banjo, guitar, bass, mandolin) has been playing music on and off since 1962 (the “folkie” days). Way back then in Norfolk, VA, he played banjo and guitar in several Kingston Trio “clone” groups. After moving to Columbus, OH in 1966 to accept a job as a programmer with Bell Laboratories, he played bass in a country band and several rock and roll “oldies” bands. In between, Carl has played old-time and bluegrass banjo and bass with several different groups. Carl now teaches music, plays with One Riot One Ranger, Five Guys Named Moe, the Timbre Wolves, the Pit Bull String Band, and Turkeys in the Straw. And, he jams whenever he can.
