The TrailJams website has many resources for learning tunes and sets (medleys). The links below provide paths for finding them. If you would like to join our sessions or jams, the TrailJams music collection gives you an idea of what tunes to expect, and resources to learn them. You can also make good use of this collection for your own sessions or jams, or just for building your repertoire.
Irish & Celtic Tune List – Tunes we have played together in our sessions.
The Irish & Celtic Tune List provides the most complete list of tunes and links in the TrailJams collection, which makes it a great destination to explore. The list is updated frequently, and is in a form that makes it easy to print or to view on your phone or tablet.
Tune of the Week – Tunes chosen by the TrailJams group to practice and then play together.
The Tune of the Week page is a great jumping-off point to explore the tunes that the TrailJams group has specifically chosen to work on. From there you can jump to a page for each tune. There you will find the musical score (dots), links to recordings, and more, to help you learn the tunes.
Favorite Irish & Celtic Sets – Tune sets (medleys) chosen by the TrailJams group.
These are sets (medleys) of tunes that are favorites in the TrailJams Irish / Celtic sessions. They have either stood the test of time and remained favorites, we have recently started playing them, or we are about to give them a try. This list is revised as we add new favorites, remove old favorites, or make adjustments to individual sets.
Old-Time Tune List – American Old-Time tunes we might play together.
The Old-Time Tune List provides a list of American old-time tunes that we have played together or might play together in old-time jams.
