Dusty Strings Jam, 2014/09/14

Sarah was out sick this month, so we had a kind of informal jam with me nominally hosting. It was a gorgeous day out, so thanks to everyone who came down to the basement to jam! Here’s what we played:

  • Little Rabbit, Where’s Your Mama (D)
  • Soldier’s Joy (D)
  • Midnight on the Water (D)
  • Liberty (D)
  • Fisher’s Hornpipe (D)
  • Heel Fly (D)
  • Over the Waterfall (D)
  • Peter Kiefer’s (waltz) (D)
  • Whiskey Before Breakfast (D)
  • Bill Cheatham (A)
  • Boil ‘Em Cabbage Down (A)
  • Bonaparte Crossing the Rhine (D)
  • Cluck Old Hen (A dor)
  • Shady Grove (A dor)
  • Will the Circle Be Unbroken (G)*
  • Little Birdie (G)*
  • Old Joe Clark (A)
  • Ragtime Annie (D/G)
  • Angeline the Baker (D)
  • Wind That Shakes The Barley (D)
  • Red Haired Boy (A)
  • Red Wing (G)
  • Tennessee Waltz (D)
  • Pretty Little Dog (Am)
  • They Gotta Quit Kickin’ My Dawg Around (G)*
  • Jambalaya (on the Bayou) (C)*

Turns out most of the tunes I can think of on the spot are in D. Huh. I should probably work on that. Asterisks in the list above indicate songs that were sung — I think this is a great development, and we should have more singing in general, even though it kind of terrifies me personally to sing.
