    Hi everyone. No podcast this week Iím afraid. Iím on holiday with my family in an old stone cottage and Iím struggling to get a dead enough sound in any of the rooms. Iíve run out of pillows to use to muffle things!

    Back next week, refreshed and with a little less 17th century slapback. Happy picking

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for the Jam along Podcast. This is a super resource, and I am really enjoying it. The tracks are easy to play along with, and the chord charts are a great help also.

    Hi everyone. After a break last week there are now 3 new episodes on the podcast - Shove the Pig's Foot a Little Further Into the Fire. I'd be curious to know how many mandolin players play this one or whether it's more commonly a fiddlers' tune.

    I love it (plus it was specially requested by my 8 year old son Fred, so I had to do it!).

    As an added bonus you can hear next door's dog barking on the Jam Along episode. Might explain why I got carried away and recorded an extra set of backup on the Jam Along track, meaning it's 4 and a half times through in total.

    Happy picking!

    Hi everyone. This week's tune on the podcast is Bill Cheatham.

    I've done something a little different this week and added a fourth episode just of a performance of the tune. There's no chat, it's just 4 times through with me playing both tune and backup. I figured it might be useful for people to have a reference to listen to if they're getting to know a tune so they can get it in their heads.

    If people use it I'll keep going and do this every week. If not...I won't! I'm also keen to know whether people are keen to try some of the tunes we've already done a little faster, e.g. 90 bpm. I'll keep adding new tunes either way but might also be fun to try some of the ones we've done a little quicker too.

    Happy picking!

    Hi Matt, Thanks for the podcast. Bill Cheatham is one I have been wanting to work on. I like the performance addition. I also like the idea of the 90bpm version.
    Hope your doing well, and thanks.

    +1 on 90bpm, especially on Cherokee Shuffle, Whiskey Before Breakfast, Soldiers Joy, Salt Creek, Bill Cheatham. Nice job on the podcast, it's cool to whip out my phone and play along with it!

    Great, thanks - getting a few votes for 90bpm from various sources so I'll get cracking (and will start with one of your requests!)

    I had fun chatting to Bradley Laird on his Grass Talk Radio podcast today about how Bluegrass Jamalong was born and why I chose to do it. Thanks Brad!

    Quick update - the performance track proved really popular so I'm going to add one each week from now on and will release 4 episodes per week. I've also started going back and adding them to past episodes too.

    Matt,

    The pleasure was mine! It is so interesting to me to explore how bluegrass has expanded to other corners of the globe. Thank you for doing the interview!

    Hi everyone. We're stepping things up a little on the podcast this week and playing Cherokee Shuffle at 85bpm. I'm going to keep adding tunes at 75bpm too but will re-visit some of the ones we've done at 85 too.

    Happy picking,

    Hi everyone. In case any of you listen to the podcast on Spotify, you may notice it's gone. They've removed it because they think I'm trying to use a podcast to distribute music, which is against the rules. It happened since I started uploading the performance episodes, which don't have any talking in them, so hopefully they'll let me re-list if I either delete those or add a spoken segment to them. In the meantime, you can listen on other podcast platforms or here

    I moved house last week and din't manage to get a podcast recorded but am up and running again now. This week's tune is Whiskey Before Breakfast at 85bpm, to continue the theme of picking up the pace a little.


    No performance track I'm afraid as Spotify won't allow podcasts that are all music with no spoken content! Links to other platforms here

    Also, I've added a chord chart using the Nashville number system as well as the regular version, in case people find it useful

    Happy Friday everyone. It's Big Sciota on the podcast this week (at 75 bpm). Can't work out how it took me so long to get to this tune!

    Hi everyone. Having looked at downloads and site visits over the past few months, it seems people generally prefer new episodes earlier in the week rather than later. So, with that in mind I'm going to release new episodes every Tuesday from now on.

    This week is Soldier's Joy in D at 85 bpm. Links and chord charts are on the site as always. I'll have a bonus 'mini-jam' episode later in the week and back next Tuesday with another set of episodes.
    Happy picking.

    Hi everyone.

    For those of you who don't use Apple podcasts (or Google, Stitcher etc) you can now access Bluegrass Jamalong tracks on Spotify.

    I've added the first volume - 15 tracks at 75 bpm. I'll keep adding volumes as I go. Spotify's rules mean I have to release them as music rather than a podcast, so there's no chat...which some of you may think is a good thing!

    To get new tracks as soon as they're out, the podcast is the way to go (plus I'm working on some exciting additional content...more to follow on that soon). But, it's good to have options!

    Happy picking,
    Matt

    Sticking with 85bpm on the pod this week. Gold Rush is the tune and itís recorded on location in the house Iím staying in in Donegal.

    There are 9 people, 3 dogs and a field full of donkeys here but I think I managed three reasonably clear takes ��
