12 bar blues for beginners

  • May 9, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We have started a small group in Forest Park for beginners, but experienced musicians have stopped by and shared their talents, therefore, all are more than welcome. 
It is a studio like atmosphere....we have a keyboard, bass guitar, amps, drums, guitars, and recording devices.
It's for Blues beginners...it is limited to about 6-9 people
Lots of CRUNCH for such a small setting...
We are trying to have it on Thursdays and Fridays at 6P, and Sundays at 2P.... for 2 hours or so.

It is so much fun!... Swing by and check it out.

Pick a date, and time...verify it ( just in case) , and come on down.

    Wow, a hundred. I was thinking of my small apartment but when you said that, realized my place wouldn't be adequate.

      Don't be discouraged...you can host 2, 3, 5...whatever you can accommodate...I hope you do because Thane may not offer his place in May

      We are trying to accommodate everyone...unfortunately­ Forest Park is on "stand by"...for now that is the best we can do. KEEP A LOOK OUT! If you have a space to offer, please let us know...as of now we have CCYC, Comic Book Store, Orland Park, Forest Park, and coming up-Palatine...and possibly Midlothian. Thanks for inquiring

    Though our next session is focusing on 12 bar blues, we also want to mix it up with Rock and Roll music...
    Singers are welcome, and if you don't have an instrument, don't worry...we'll provide it.
    This group started so that we give others an opportunity to meet in the near West suburbs.
    Thursdays, and Fridays is at 6PM...Sundays are at 2PM

    I know it's rather late notice, but I thought I'd put it out there.

    Where to go once in the area I can join the group.

    sounds really cool...hopefully i can attend in the future.

    Can't come tonight! Too short of notice! I screwed up and said yes then saw it was tonight

    May 9, 2013

  • Jeff

    Wow include me next time! It's just way to short of notice for me! I'm busy getting things together for a small party and jam session at my house this Saturday but a beginners blues jam with a full band sounds awesome! I actually hope to put together a band that plays alot of blues and classic rock and folk stuff with people who will practice and put together a good show and then play some gigs!

    Too bad about the late notice. I work in Hines, IL (just down the road). Had I known in advance I would have a) Started work later than 6:00 so that I might attend, and b) bring my guitar.

    Curious too: You say this is for beginners, but beginners of what? Guitar or Blues? Just a little suggestion for the future: Be clear in your descriptions.

    May 9, 2013

    • Joseph

      Oh...sorry about the confusion. It's for beginners in both guitar and blues...but, there are higher level people that show...always a learning process....Playing a 12 bar blues progression ( once you know what it is) is very basic...and it can become complicated....It's­ up to the individual. I just verified for this evening, otherwise, I'd have told you all earlier....not to "fret"...there­ are other times, AND if you have a place...may I suggest you offer it up. We are always looking for locations to accommodate everyone.............PS:­ Once you know me, you'll find out that I am always encouraging the "beginner" guitar player...whether blues, rock, scales, modes,or progressions...all with one finger...for real.

    I'm interested but just got this notice today. it wasnt enough time to work it in my schedule. But if its an ongoing this on those days, i think i can, finally, do it. I live in oak park so distant shouldn't be a problem.

    May 9, 2013

  • nancy p

    Joe, this is something I'm going to try to make but depends on my work schedule tonight: I'll have a better idea around 4:30: thanks for the invite, I'm really a beginner here but hopefully I'll make progress quickly !
