Bill Monroe – Jerusalem Ridge – Great Bluegrass Instrumental

Bill Monroe has composed many classic bluegrass tunes. One of his best bluegrass instrumentals is Jerusalem Ridge. Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Band with Kenny Baker on fiddle played this tune in a fantastic way, but there are also great versions on mandolin and flatpicking guitar.

Im am just learning this tune as we started to play this in our bluegrass band. So I listened to many videos and other versions. I have compiled a youtube playlist with interesting videos with some other great versions of Jerusalem Ridge.

I have also added some links for sources of free sheet music for Jerusale Ridge below.

Enjoy listening – and playing – Jerusalem Ridge!
