Soldier’s Joy-Beginner Banjo

Soldier’s Joy

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.
