I prefer to sit and play and listen to other folks in a more informal
setting; in my experience that's how songsters get to know each other
so we can support each other and help each other. What I'm describing
may not have been the intention of this group though, I'm not sure.

I find a home or a backyard tends to be the most comfortable for
everyone; someplace where folks feel comfortable bringing something
new, and there's not always a pressure to 'perform'. Improvisation and
musically bouncing off of each other can add a lot to a song's
experience, even if it's just in that moment - but a lot of the
impromptu is lost if players and singers aren't comfortable with each
other, and in a comfortable setting.

Many times I just go sit at Barton Springs and play, and in the back,
up on the hill, might be a good place to meet once it's a little
cooler.
