Our friends at BluegrassCollege.org are ringing in the New Year with the launch of their free Bluegrass College Fakebook.
The Fakebook currently consists of tabs (notation for the fiddle) for 10 bluegrass instrumentals. The tabs are available for all the bluegrass instruments including: bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, and dobro. The dobro page only contains 9 tabs not 10.
These free tabs are presented in high resolution pdf format, available for download or print. The proprietors of BluegrassCollege.org say they intend to add an additional 10 tabs to the Fakebook every couple of months.
If you are learning to play, this is great opportunity to learn some new tunes. If you are involved in a group of learners, it’s even better. You could all learn the same tunes together and be able to practice playing them together.
And when you’re ready for some more in-depth learning, be sure to check out the premium lessons offered by BluegrassCollege.org. The lessons include audio and video files as well as tab, and are taught by such bluegrass greats as The Infamous Stringdusters, members of Three Ring Circle and Blue Highway, Ron Stewart, Matt Flinner, Casey Dreissen, Luke Bulla, Tyler Grant, Mark Schatz, Missy Raines and many more.
