Core Tunes

Core Tunes List

After a few years without “core tunes”, we’ve had some requests to bring them back for 2017. These tunes are not mandatory to learn, and if you already know them, all the better! And if you don’t already play these tunes, learning them will help give us some commonality for sessions at the camp and in sessions all around the world.

You can click on the play button to listen in your browser, or click the download button to download the mp3 file to your computer. Thanks to the staff for chipping in the recordings!
