CANCELED BECAUSE OF WEATHER - Acoustic Guitar in the Park

  • May 19, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us at the park to play acoustic guitar and sing.  Geared for  intermediate and advanced beginner level and guitar players who like to play contemporary and classical pop, rock, alternative and R&B.  We also welcome singers.  We will play in small groups so that everyone has the chance to participate, learn new songs and share techniques.  Bring your acoustic guitar, picks, tuners and a music stand if you have one.  Feel free to bring whatever else that will make you comfortable like chairs, blankets, and food.  I will bring some song books, and I have posted many songs on the Meetup site that you can print out. 

Also feel free to email me any songs with chords that you would like me to add online for the group at [masked] , or bring some copies to the Meetup for everyone to learn.  There is a $1 dollar optional donation to cover the cost of the Meetup organizer fees.  The get together will be canceled if there is rain or bad weather.

Directions:  See the arrow on the map above.  If you enter the park on E 67th St, follow the path up towards the biking/running loop in the park (Park drive), and once you are there walk south on about one block.  You will see a grassy area to the east side of the road where we will meet.  If you are entering the park, from the south, walk up Park drive and you will come across the grass area after you cross over the road on 66th that crosses the park.  Other landmarks will be a fork in park drive with two traffic lights and the Shakespeare statue across the street to the west.

      Thanks David, looking forward to hearing the next date. Today was going to be hectic anyway as I had a graduation event to got to but planned on stopping by for a short while.

      I just posted a new event. Hopefully you can make it. I know that you printed out songs the last time, so stay tuned. I will be updating the list with new and improved songs over the next week or two so you can print out new ones.

    Thanks Lou, I am planning to keep the meetup for this Sunday, but will keep everyone notified if the forecast worsens. It looks like there is a 20 - 40% chance of light showers later in the afternoon. I am going to move the meetup start time up to 12 noon for anyone who can make it an hour earlier since there isn't much chance of rain earlier in the day and I plan to stay through 4 in the afternoon unless the weather worsens. I suggest bringing an umbrella in case it there are light showers for a short period of time. Of course, it is up to you, and I will be planning another meetup in a couple of weeks if you decide to skip this one.

    Hey guys, I don't want to risk getting my instrument wet. See you next time. Have fun!

    They are now saying on and off showers tomorrow. May be time to consider moving the date.

    Have a lesson around noon, so I'll most likely be arriving a little late, with my fiddle this time.

    Weather permitting this sounds cool. Will bring my acoustic, old school tuner, picks, and a backpack of music books: Beatles, Stones, BeeGees, Paul Simon, Bowie

    I don't know if I can make this one because I'm going to a show that night and I'm supposed to meet a friend ahead of time... but I'll check with her when it gets nearer!

    Sorry - I clicked YES but then realized it is memorial Day Weekend and I will be away camping... with my guitar... :) Another one for sure.

      You're right. I moved it up one week since most people will probably be away over Memorial Day Weekend.
