Jam Rules

As with any kind of group activity, jams have basic rules or conventions. And, as with any kind of rules, jam rules vary…..from place to place, genre to genre and playing level to playing level. Rather than try to present one one-size-fits-all set of rules, we'll let you pick the set that best fits your situation.

Oh, there is one universal jam rule that's applicable to all jams in all genres, places and levels. And it's an easy one to remember-JUST DO IT!
