Pickin' and a-Grinnin' at Lockdown

We are having a blast at the Lockdown and we're sounding really good.  If you haven't been to one of the jams recently, you are missing out.  We would really love to have the mandolin and fiddle players in the group join us!  Don't be left out.  Things are so much better.  Come and join us!


See you there!

    That was so much fun yesterday! The energy was great, and having new folks and instruments and songs added to the joy. (The fact that our catcher and pitcher BOTH hit grand slams for the Giants yesterday while we were playing made the afternoon so delicious that words kind of fail me....)

    Anyway, just want to say that if any pickers and grinners ever want to sit around on a non-Lockdown weekend afternoon somewhere and play and sing for a few hours, count me in. Don't have anything specific in mind -- I just always leave our Sunday jams wanting more. :-)

      Yes, it was fun. I agree with wanting more. When 4pm rolls around I feel like I'm just getting started!

      Same here, I need this at least twice a week. Count me in.

    I'm being along "Sweet Home Alabama"! Heard a cool Bluegrass version of "Call Me The Breeze" on Sirius XM yesterday. Maybe next time. :-) Pick On!

    I meant to be there; but managed to get sick. So sorry; but my stomach is really messed up today and don't think I can handle the carry of equipment to and from the parking lot. I will shoot for next time. Have fun!

    Good morning! I was humming a couple of songs to myself this morning, and it occurred to me to make copies of the lyrics and bring them along tomorrow, in case you guys would like to give them a try. (I uploaded them, too.) One is a song you probably know -- Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight (Emmylou). The other is called "Walking on the Moon" by Tom Russell. Eliza Gilkyson does a beautiful cover here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2oioe77Krw
    I don't know if we can bluegrass that one up, but I thought it was too pretty not to try.
    See you all tomorrow!

      Both of those sound good. We should be able to try them.

    I am in my last few days of Graduate School. I have completed all requirements except turn-in of the last project and it is almost finished. It is due by Wednesday night. I am starting to relax. Hallelujah! I think I can now say "I have done it!" I will finally be able to get back to my love of music....if you guys will allow me to get back at it again for the July session? Whew!

    Posting chords and lyrics for a new song to try: "He Reached Down" (Iris DeMent). Think we can do it without a piano? Love this song.

    SameO, SameO.
    Works for me.
    I do have a gig on the 28th, so, Scott, I must make my apologies, and I will wish you an early Happy Birthday. I'm sure the house will be a rockin'!

    June 13, 2014

    • Scott N.

      No worries. Have a fun gig. Thanks for the B'day wishes.

    I apparently can't tell an "S" from an "S" on a calendar. The jam is on Sunday. Sorry for the confusion.

    Different day, different crowd?

    Can't wait 'til next time! Scott -- is the Saturday (instead of Sunday) date intentional?

    Thx!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
