Underrated Bluegrass Tunes

In bluegrass music, each bluegrasser is expected to know a good number of instrumental fiddle tunes to keep up at a jam. While tunes like “Cherokee Shuffle,” “Big Sciota,” and “Gold Rush” are known by just about every picker, there are thousands of tunes out there—and some of the best of them will unfortunately always carry the moniker of being a ‘jam buster.’ These are some of those tunes: great instrumental numbers that I think to be jam standards, from great pickers like the Hillmen, Jim Mills, the Johnson Mountain Boys, and more. Enjoy this list of underrated bluegrass tunes!
