Huck Finn Bluegrass Festival Late Night jaming

Below are Bluegrass jam chord charts and lyrics for popular (and not so popular) songs and fiddle tunes.  Some of these are a little more common than others.  Fair warning, there are a few potential “jam busters” on this list, so use your judgement on tunes you call.  Also, check out my Weekly Mandolin Sheet Music and Song Breakdown posts for detailed notes on many of these tunes.  You can subscribe for notifications of new breakdowns at the bottom of the page too!

If I’m missing a song you love and/or would like to have a chart for, please let me know.  Also, if you are new to bluegrass jams, check out the Jam Etiquette page.
