This week’s lesson is thanks to a Gold Member request. Jerusalem Ridge is one of the most popular bluegrass fiddle tunes ever written! It was written by Bill Monroe and his longtime fiddle player Kenny Baker (although many people think that Kenny wrote it alone and Bill snagged credit for it).
It’s a fast, modal tune in A minor with 4 parts and some unique timing. It’s also got some passages in 2nd position, so be prepared to improve your left hand technique! Watch the YouTube video below to see Kenny playing Jerusalem Ridge with the Del McCoury Band. Enjoy!
