Workingman's Monthly Electric Jam

Please state what you'll be playing in your RSVP to make it easy to track.

Here's a list of some stuff we have been playing at the last several jams.

Big Boss Man

Bertha

Ramble on Rose

Sugaree

Cold Rain and Snow

GDTRFB

Beat It On Down the Line

Friend of the Devil

Sugar Magnolia

Brokedown Palace

What we haven't been doing is working on some of the bigger jam vehicle tunes. We should make a spot in the third hour just after the 'Safety Meeting in the Stairwell' jam to bust out an Eyes, Dark Star, ScarletFire, etc.

We should go through these until we devolve into the usual 'call something out clockwise setlist'

I'll sign up for drums. If another drummer signs up I will rent the congas and split the time. If two bass players sign up, we will look into another room.

    Mike? (or others?): If helps, for group consideration before Thursday studio reservation cancellation deadlines...(I think we can cancel 1 of the 2 rooms up until Thursday with no $ loss). In spite of lastest change in "body counts", given multiple guitarists signed up, I assume you all still want to have 2 rooms. But maybe folks want to "re-allocate their instrumental duties" to whichever is their primary room? Bearing in mind distribution of duties:
    (1) Only 1 "official" drummer in electric room?
    (2) I think Ted is signed up for 2 rooms?
    (3) Only 1 lead player?
    (4) Only 1 bass player (Not sure about that?)

    Assuming still 2 rooms, if no one else wants, as before, I can TRY some VERY!!! amateur drums in acoustic room, for at least part time... PS - Please pardon longwindedness...just aiming to help the quest for musical bliss!

    FYI, if any of ya'll check out the acoustic room, if I make it hope to try singing lead on Dead's cover of "Sing Me Back Home", with harmonizers. I posted lyrics/chords/links to performances under "Files" if anyone is into trying that one with me. Thanks.

    And, like most Heads probably are, I'm pretty used to letting songs stretch out so I would be happy to see a ScarletFire or Other One : - )

    Hi everyone! I'm looking to make this my first session with the Workingman Jam and I don't want to step on any toes. I could potentially play bass for some of these tunes (Bertha, Sugaree, GDTRFB, Friend) and I could try to work on getting the other ones up to par. I also wouldn't mind playing electric guitar every few songs. I don't know every Dead song by name, not even close, so not an experienced expert here. I just wanna try to bring something to the table and have a good time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
