30 Bluegrass and Country Tunes is a new edition by Dave McKeown, arranged and edited in tab for 4 String Banjo tuned to CGDA. This collection of favourites is a diverse and fun introduction to the rich heritage of American folk music.

The music consists of the melody with chord symbols added, so friends can join in on guitar, mandolin, piano, banjo or accordion. Some of the polka style tunes are quite simple, while some of the reel style tunes are fast and furious. As in most Bluegrass/Country music, the keys are easy, mostly D and G. Players with two to three years experience should be able to manage most of these uplifting and beautiful tunes.

The recorded samples are played on Clarinet and Alto Saxophone

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
