Welcome to the Old-Time Jam!

Welcome to the Old Time Jam, a place for those who love picking banjos, fiddles, guitars, mandolins, basses, and all manner of music making implements!

Here are some of the highlights of what you'll find here:

  • The Old Time Machine - this is the primary feature of the site. It's the music player you see right below the navigation menu on the home page. It contains an ever expanding repository (currently over 100 tunes) of backup tracks for old time tunes. There are multiple backup configurations for each tune, so just choose what's best for you depending on your instrument, playing level and goals. Click here for more information about the old time machine, or just head back over to it, pick your desired backup configuration, and start jamming forthwith!
  • Blog/News Section - here's where I'll post updates to the site like new tunes that have been added, new member content, and any other manner of music related stuff.
  • Tabs - I have written tablature for banjo and fiddle/mandolin for all 5 volumes of tunes (100 in all) currently available, and will continue to do so for each volume as they come out. The tabs for volume 1 (the "old time top 20") are available for anyone who wants them by signing up for the old time newsletter here. The remainder of the tab volumes can be purchased individually, or as a set. You can also get all of the current and future (many more planned to come!) tabs by becoming a lifetime member of the jam.
  • Members Area - This contains all of the downloadable member content that comes with a lifetime memberships (tabs, mp3 backups, etc.). After becoming a member, you'll receive a username and password that allows you to access the content anytime.
