    Song (s) of the day goes to:
    1) Rod = The Wild Colonial Boy!
    2) Suzi = Give me one reason
    3) Chrisc = what was that famous song you did early on, I couldn't fathom the artist?

    • Pete W.

      You're too Lukie... you're a bit of dark horse with so many songs tucked away I can tell. Stunning tone to your guitar BTW! :)

      Yep, one of my all time favourite Dvd's, and CD's - The last Waltz. I also love The Weight and The night they drove old Dixie Down off this DVD - really special

      1 · February 10, 2014

    • Dean M.

      The weight is a song we usually play at the end of the day once blues songs have run out. Yesterday was the first session we didn't!

    Thanks again Dean and Michelle for allowing us to invade your beautiful home. Great to see everyone. So much fun!! Looking forward to the next jam, although I'm a bit sad that the next one will be bat-less.

    • Pete W.

      Next time I need position myself right next you Suzi (and ChrisC), as without words I'm lost and I so love singing myself but I need the words in front of me...

      February 9, 2014

  • Chrisc C.

    Really enjoyed the jam guys and gals. It's a good opp for me to learn more on the guitar and some new blues songs.

      Loved your singing Chrisc...and Suzi too of course, I have a thing for female vocalists of such undiscovered talent!

    Hi everyone. I haven't had a chance to put some songs together. Maybe we can start with the ones I uploaded after last time that are a available in the 'Files' section.
    -I'm a stranger here
    -Key to the Highway
    -St James Infirmary
    -Nobody Knows you (Proper version, not the rubbish Eric Clapton version :)
    -Bring it on Home to me.

    That will do for a start
