Soldier’s Joy is one of those must know tunes for bluegrass jams. In particular if there is a fiddle player in the jam.
This arrangement is set in the key of D with the 5th string tuned to A. It uses the D chord position mostly with an A barre chord thrown in.
Shouldn’t be too hard for those that have been playing over a year. Beginner-intermediate level. Should know something about melodic-style banjo.
