Jammin’ by Bob Marley

Here’s an iconic Reggae rock tune by Bob Marley. I’ve kind of consolidated the melody into an EZ repeatable version for you here. I at first tried to transcribe Marley’s exact vocal performance (which was very time consuming as, in the loose Reggae way, he did not sing a single line the same twice!), but then thought it more educationally useful create the version here… and leave room for jamming too!… how appropriate for Fiddle Jammers! I hope you enjoy!  I adopted this version mostly to the 1st verse lyrics (which I think are pretty applicable for us here at Fiddle Jam Institute too, by the way).  See the chart below.  The backing track I created is exactly the same length and tempo as the original recording (I actually recorded each part while listening to the original).  7/20/13 addition: Some students seemed to need a simpler and a bit slower practice/explanation track.  You’ll find that below now too.
