    Listened to some of the excellent versions of Jerusalem
    Ridge on this site.Where can I get some really good tab ?
    All I found on this site and others was single line
    melodies with chords above.I thinks there is a player on this board that downloads his MP3's goes by the handle
    of Collins ? did you listen to his version of this song ?
    That is want I want. It is a total solo version,very good !
    Thanks.

    Brudford,

    Thanks for the great comments! Since doing that mando project recording, Jerusalem's Ridge has become a bit of a "theme song" for me. As far as my version of it goes, I basically learned it by listening to it on a couple of recordings, and then sat down and tried to come up with a way I could play it and accompany myself at the same time. I did realize after I posted my recording that I had left out a whole section of the piece, which I have now gone back and worked out as well. I dont have music written for my version, but if you were interested I could work something out, either in notation or in tab. It is a really satisfying piece to play...

    David, I just listened to your version. VERY nice! I like how you played it out of all the various chords. Kinda like Chet Atkins or Tommy Emmanuel on a mando. Great job!

    Harold Streeter's mandolin tab for Jeruselam Ridge is excellent, and easy to understand. And it is 'right on the money'

    The "Fiddler's Fake Book" has Jerusalem Ridge as played by Kenny Baker. Kenny was Monroe's fiddler, and was known for this tune. There is a fakebook for mando and also guitar available, and these do show tab. The contents are not as complete as the fiddle book. It's a three part tune-
    a)Am, e7, Am, E.
    b)Am, Dm, C, E7, Am
    c)Am, C, Am, Am, Dm, C, e7, Am, with a half measure extra at the end!
    Have fun!

    Great to see the chords, I've been batteling with this number for a good while now!! What an excellent tune!! I have heard versions from Mark O'Connor and from the Tony Rice Bluegrass guitar album, both excellent allthough very difficult to keep up with when trying to play along. In fact I can honestly say I am yet to acheive keeping up with either of those recordings.

    I'm working on this one too, coming along slowly.

    I actually hear it as a 4 part tune, with the B section and the D section not quite the same, i.e., not having the first triplet at F#-G-F#.

    Is it better (speed/tone wise) to play the C section on one string?

    This is the first Monroe tune that I've attempted. When I began last month I figured that I had selected a difficult one and that subsequent tunes would be "easier", but I now suspect that getting this one down at speed will make all tunes easier.

    I play the B section on the A and D strings. The D part is on the E string primarily.
