Note about the chords -
I'll try to notate these songs mostly in G but some may be done in other keys. Most sing songs will have the key chosen by the vocalist. For instance, I can't sing some songs in G, they don't make a pair of vice grips that will squeeze tight enough, so I have to sing 'em in D or E, sorry banjos. In fact, Will the Circle is most comfortable to me in F. Cripple Creek and Old Joe Clark are mostly done in A but a banjo player by himself might play em in G. (You know the one about the banjo player who left his car unlocked with his banjo in the back seat? He ran outside to check it and someone had left another banjo...)
Of course, this is getting very old very quickly. Remember I told you I can't sing in G? That means lots of the chords I wrote above are "wrong", cause I sing it in D, not G. So what is a poor bluegrass picker to do? "OH, NO! My paper is in G but he's doing it in D. I CANT PLAY!" And "DEE!!!!?????? That song's not in DEEEEE!!!!!!"
Well now don't despair, this is a piece of cake. Here is a sample from my book entitled "Music Theory for Bluegrass Players"
