TUNE BANK

This page contains tunes with their mp3's (and in some cases sheet music or tablature) that we use most often at Woodbury Strings.  We are just starting this page, so we are starting with a short list of the tunes that are in current use for the fall of 2014.  We'll add more as we are able.  These are intended as aids for our private students and for our slow jam participants, but anyone is free to use them if they wish.  The mp3's are of reduced quality to help keep the page loading at a reasonable rate, and are only for educational use to aid in learning the tunes.  These are our versions, but there are many versions of every tune and many elaborations can be made.  For more information on learning tunes by ear, please visit our Slow Jam page.  Enjoy!

(E- Easy; M- Medium; C - Challenging; V=Very challenging)

Note that easy and medium tunes can always be made more challenging with speed and elaborations.  Our easy tunes are intended for our newest beginners, while medium tunes can also be played by beginners with some experience.
