2021 Common Tunes

Below you’ll find the 2021 collection of CIM Common Tunes (25 tunes arranged into 13 sets)! We recommend listening to the fast tracks many times, and then playing along with the slow tracks to learn the notes. The sheet music and chords are provided as an aid in learning, but things like pickup notes, transitions, and endings sometimes cause small discrepencies in how we choose to simply write out the tune, so we recommend using the 'dots' as a tool, but not a definitive source. You can download the list of tunes here. We hope you enjoy this collection, and be sure to check out the archive for more!
