Blues Camp Song Pool Links

Here are Youtube and SoundCloud links.
1.    Identify the song selections for your group.
2.    Identify song links on this list (list may not be in order).
3.    Click the link below the song or paste it into the URL.
Listen, study, practice and learn the song.
If a song is missing, feel free to look it up on iTunes or YouTube.
Do not email us with song selections. Each list is created based on members, instrumentation and skill level mastery.


The cool thing about the Blues is that it is based on the oral tradition. This camp is designed to encourage and developing the skill of playing by ear. In most cases, there will be no sheet music . . . so encourage them to develop their ear by “really” listening. However, there may be tabs and charts online they can use, but we are stepping up our game this year. If they can’t find a song, no worries, they can learn it with their own personal private lessons instructor.
