Jerusalem Ridge tab

My picking buddy and I have started working on tunes from the classic album "Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe", and this is the first new-to-me tune I'm starting with.  This is a lower-register break for guitar, an amalgamation of several different arrangements I looked at.  I will add an upper-register break after I get this one down, and put some rhythm tracks up soon (after Wildwood Flower rhythm tracks).

There's a lot of weirdness in this tune--several 2/4 measures thrown into a 4/4 song, and a D major in an A minor key song.  It seems some play D minor instead of the major in the third part.


  1. I'm eager for your jerusalem ridge tracks! That is one song that I really need practice with - the timing. love your stuff - keep it up!

  2. Thanks. I'm about halfway through wildwood flower tracks. Jerusalem ridge is next after that.

  3. great are correct...D major in an A minor tune...weirdness indeed...also some crooked's my take on mandolin..also thanks for this site very nicely done and a fantastic resource

  4. Nice video, cool Monroeish double stops. Thanks for the link.

  5. Dave I stumbled onto this site from my youtube account and must say its the best one I've found to date! Man you have done some serious work for an extended time putting this site together and I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for it! I've been practicing with your tracks instead of a metronome and it sure makes all my practice hours per day more enjoyable, and fun! Thanks again for such a well organized and helpful site! You rock dude!
