Tune of the Week

What is a “Tune of the Week?” From thousands of tunes that we could play, it is useful to choose one to focus on. The “Tune of the Week” is one selected tune to polish up and then play together. It’s for fun, and to build our repertoire and skill individually and as a community.

These are tunes chosen by the TrailJams group to practice and then play together. Click on an image to visit the tune’s page, with musical notation, links to recordings, and more.
