Songs to learn

Recommended Posts

I haven’t seen a list like the song hits,but the jam along cd has some songs that go withe sessions. Songs like Bluey,The Cats Meow and Fatboy. Outside of those I think a good one to start with would be the “St. Louis Blues“ by WC Handy.You might also look at “On A Monday” by led Belly. Another resource you might look at is the book “Blues Rhythms You can Use” by John Ganapes.Another resource many of us are using Is the Griff Hamlin “Blues Guitar Unleashed””Plus Hal Leonard has a “12 bar Blues” by Dave. Rubin.

As Triple-o said, I don't know of a list of songs " to learn as the course progresss ".  But if you are studying blues there are certain popular songs that, when you go out to a blues jam, that are often played.  These are the ones that you should probably learn in preparation going out to jam. 

Griff Hamlin posted an unofficial 20 Most Played Blues Jam Tunes.  It inclueds the usual suspects such as Stormy Monday, Hoochie Coochie Man, Tore Down, Sweet Home Chicago, etc.  These would be good ones to study as you go along.
