    Thank you much, Matt for this series of podcasts. Although Iíve played various instruments for decades Iím an utter tyro on mandolin and the tuning in fifths is challenging my ability to adapt. In the next couple weeks Iíll be starting to use this series to press my progress forward. Again, thank you.

    Hi everyone. I’ve started adding interviews to the podcast. First two are guitar players but I’ll be lining some up with mando players too. I interviewed Jake Eddy a couple of weeks ago and today’s episode is Marcel Ardans from Lessons With Marcel.

    Hope you enjoy them.

    Just want to say, love your podcasts. Really helping me with timing and rhythm. Especially like the "jam" ones. Can't find many backing tracks that mix both melody and rhythm together. Keep 'em coming!

    Hi again. We've got new tracks up now for Billy in the Lowground at 85 bpm

    Seems incredible to have got to this point but it's the 100th episode of the podcast in a couple of weeks. I've got a really cool guest lined up to celebrate. More on that next week!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Bill Cheatham at 85 bpm takes up to episode #99

    I'm releasing a very special episode tomorrow to celebrate the 100th episode - it features a great interview with the one and only Bryan Sutton!

    Just listened to this podcast. Its a wonderful weekly motivator to refresh on some tunes, especially when jamming is difficult right now.

    Also, I'm not sure what your profession is, but you interview style is very natural and insightful.

    Just became a Patreon, hope that helps in a small way.

    Thanks so much (on both counts!). I'm the main press spokesperson for the company I work for (SpareRoom.com) so I've been interviewed a fair bit. That probably helps!

    It turns out the performance tracks I added to the podcast as an afterthought have become some of the most downloaded episodes. People have said it helps to have a relatively simple version of the tune to get familiar with, which makes sense.

    So, I've released an album of them on Spotify (as Spotify don't allow the podcast cos it contains too much music).

    They're here if anyone's interested

    This week's tune is East Tennessee Blues in C at 75 bpm. My version borrows heavily from Adam Steffey's, which is my favourite!

    Tracks are live on the podcast now.

    Hi everyone. Another new tune on the podcast this week - Black Mountain Rag in D at 75 bpm. Chord sheets in D, C (capo at the 2nd fret) and Nashville numbers are up on the website - you'll find the episodes here

    Hi everyone. We're stepping things up this week with our first tune at 95 bpm. It's Angeline the Baker and it's live on Apple Podcasts now!
    You'll find chord sheets and links to other platforms at www.bluegrassjamalong.com as usual.

    I've also introduced some new 'Food For Thought' episodes ever week on a Friday. Each one picks one thought or topic relating to playing music and opens it up for discussion. The first two are on the podcast and have had a great response.

    Cheers everyone.

    Hi. This week's tune on the podcast is Turkey in the Straw at 85 bpm.

    I also had the pleasure of chatting to Tristan Scroggins for the podcast on Monday - that will be released later this week so keep your eyes peeled!

    Hi. No new tunes on the podcast this week as I had the opportunity to interview Justin Moses instead and that was just too good to pass up! You can hear the interview here

    After a brief pause for covid (and equipment failure!) there are now some new tracks on the podcast. This week it's Red Wing at 85 bpm
