Famous sets and regional sets
Some of the experienced players in my town went to the south side Chicago sessions back in the day and speak of the "South Chicago sets". I even got yelled at once because I played too many of my own sets that used tunes that broke the tradition unbeknownst to me. There are a few sets that I would consider well established but I can’t say I am aware of any real prevalence. Our local session has maybe 6-8 sets that we play the same way and maybe twice that if you include some sets we got because of some recording we all wanted play together. These only come around every so often. I guess I’m fishing for any general opinions. Do you think most sessions, towns regions have a prevalence of common tune sets? Are there any good resources for this kind of thing?
