Guitar Center Studios Jam 4

  • Aug 18, 2012 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Guitar Center Studios in Round Rock have two beautiful practice/recording studios.

Our last three jams were really fun. They provide the following: Marshall half stack, Ampeg Bass amp, Egnator Twin, 5 pc Tama drum kit, 3 Shure SM58 mics on stands, a built in PA and a 16 track mixer along with all cables.

The only things required are your instrument and effects pedals ... that's what's so fantastic about it!

The studio is acoustically tiled and can hold about 4 or 5 people.

I plan to be on the drums so I'm basically looking for a couple guitarist, a bassist and possibly a keyboardist.

So, for any of you who are interested in jamming in a comfortable setting, without hauling equipment, worrying about noise or scouting a location … here it is!

**We'll meet promptly at 5:30pm and divide the $36 studio fee**

**Please do NOT rsvp 'NO'

If you're unable to attend**

Any ideas for a future Meetup, please let me know.

    good experience for me, a bit loud for my beginner ears. a list of songs before hand would be good. i'd do it again.

    I think that keeping list of songs we want to cover is important for successful jam - in[masked] hrs there is no time to waste on negotiating repertoire. Either we go for REALLY simple jams (3-4 chords and no Rush) - and just play patiently (15 mins if necessary) until grove emerges and we can relax and solo. Or we have a list of specific tunes we want to cover or learn - and then once the tune is called this is it - now noodling on the side everybody concentrates on a task at hand. And people come in with chord charts and at least some basic knowledge about the song. I am all for jamming but we need structure and some goals. Level of music was too loud - with everybody cranked up it was enough for one person playing chords to completely impair communication and force people to shout.
    Oh and one more things - for guitar players - folks - with 2-3 guitars AND bass playing full 6 string chords is nono - you saturate sonic space immediately if you do this - play just chord fragments.

    It was a great! We jammed for 3 hours. Good group of guys, no egos, everybody was friendly and got along really well. I hope more members come out and participate in group events ... you don't know what you're missing!

    I can do guitar or bass. I'm a lefty so I'll bring my own... story of my life :)

    How do we know what instruments we got covered?

    I can play drums too but that's probably an option if no one else will do it since I need to move some things around for that.. damn left handedness!!

    I am a classically trained recovering metal shredder who tries to sound jazzy. I'll bring a guitar and rudimentary pedal board. Gladly play bass also, though I don't own one.
