Jerusalem Ridge. This great bluegrass song was first debuted by Kenny Baker with Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys. This is one of Kenny's grand pieces and there are a lot of twists in turns in the song. It is certainly a lot more than just a simple A/B or two part fiddle tune. There is a lot of depth to this song and it is really fun to play and to experiment with.
Unit of Measure by Tony Rice is a fabulous CD to have in your collection you will find some of the best of Tony in this CD, including the cut Jerusalem Ridge, which I am featuring here. Not only is this CD a pleasure to listen to, you will find that you are constantly asking yourself -'how does he do that'. The other musicians are equally incredible on these cuts.

I have three versions of Jerusalem Ridge TAB available.
Jerusalem Ridge Beginner Tab - The First Break, Beginners - This one will be a real challenge for you! While this is termed a beginner break, with the number of eighth notes strung together it certainly does fall into the quasi-intermediate area. If you are just beginning Flatpick Guitar, you can try this one, but it will most likely be too difficult for you to play. Also considering the length of the the tune, it is more difficult to memorize.
About the hardest part of this break is the INTRO. This is a hammer-on chord. Just strum the 4-note open strings and immediately hammer-on an A minor chord with your 1st, 2nd and 3rd LF fingers. Try to make the Am sound almost as loud as the open strings - it will be a good learning exercise for you.
Because of the number of parts (5 in all), I have broken the TAB into two separate parts for each break - The part A and the part B. This is a long song and it will take you at least twice as long to memorize as typical fiddle tunes.
Jerusalem Ridge Intermediate Tab - The Second Break: The intermediate version of this song is really fun to play. In involves what I call the machine gun approach to flatpicking guitar, which is a steady array of eighth notes strung together. If your right arm doesn't ache after a practice session on this break, then my hats off to you!
Also we will play around with octaves and transitioning to the higher positions, or playing 'up-the-neck' with some of the parts of this song.
Jerusalem Ridge Advanced Tab - The Third Break: This one will bring us into variations with lots of ornamentals of lots of pull-offs, hammer-ons, slides and triplet hammer-ons. So come to the party prepared for you RH to about drop off with this break.
If you learn to play this break up to proper speed you will be the star of the parking lot pickin' group. Other picker's will ask how you do that. Use this break to build up your own breaks. Feel free to use the Free Guitar Pro file to augment and make it truly your own style.

Ultimate Guitar Tab Tips on This Selection:
Watch your left hand fingering very closely. All the fingering numbers are shown adjacent to the note head in the notation staff.
Guitar Pro has a really cool feature called speed trainer. you can set a loop of accompaniment chords to be played and after each loop the speed increased by a percent that you specify. I love this feature and it gives you milestone very clearly as to you speed conditioning.
Each quarter note = one beat in the measure so there are 4 quarter notes in just about every measure.
Memorize Your Ultimate Guitar Tab:
It is recommended that you commit your songs to memory. Want to get additional information as to how to do this effortlessly? Unless you are blessed with something like perfect pitch, you will have to memorize one little piece or a measure at a time. After you dominate each measure and are sure you won't forget it, at least for a short time, you can move to the next section. When a new section or measure is committed to memory and mastered, return to the novice and play the entire piece, including the new section. Don't continue until it is mastered.
Upon have the piece mastered, play it several more times, completely through without any mistakes.
