The podcast for anyone and everyone who plays bluegrass. Every week we feature a different fiddle tune and give you three brand new backing tracks: Backup 4 times through (you play the tune or improvise breaks), Tune 4 times through (you play backup) and ‘Jam Along’ (4 complete run throughs, alternating backup and tune). They work with any instrument - guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, bass, banjo…even if you’re a bluegrass cellist (I have actually met one!). For more info and chord charts, visit https://bluegrassjamalong.com. Hope you find these tracks useful (and thanks for listening!) - Matt

    Shove the Pig's Foot a Little Further Into the Fire (G 75 bpm) - Jam Along

    Shove the Pig's Foot a Little Further Into the Fire (G 75 bpm) - Jam Along

    This week we're jamming along to Shove the Pig's Foot a Little Further Into the Fire and I've got  three brand new backing track episodes for you. This is the jam along track where I play backup, followed by the melody, then we repeat it all another three times.

    This time I accidentally recorded an extra round of backup at the end but I've left it in so you can have a final go at the tune! That means it's four (and a half) times through in the key of G at 75 bpm.


    backing track starts at 1:19

Works for me

75 bpm is a good speed for me to learn a new tune. I’m in.
