Come join us for the first Levine Blues Jam Night of the Fall! These meetings are dedicated to creating opportunities for guitarists of any level to hang out in a relaxed environment while discussing techniques and methods behind contemporary guitar performance as well as performing publicly in an open mike jam session.

On October 21, the first 45-60 minutes of the Blues Jam will be for beginners or those who would like a refresher on the 12 bar blues form, taught by Levine guitar instructor Gary Prince. We will learn to recognize our place in the form aurally during live performance. We will discuss guitar voicings and strumming patterns to use. Finally we will cover well-used introductions and outros that blues musicians use to start and end the blues. If there is time we will incorporate a small listening session to point out the discussion points.

From 8-9pm, we will have a rotating jam session for musicians of all levels (more advanced players may want to join us at 8). We welcome vocalists, drummers, bassists, and horn players.

Refreshments will be provided. We welcome beginners as well as advanced musicians of any age. Just bring your instrument (note: if bringing an electric guitar/bass, we have some amps but only a limited number so you may want to bring your own amp). Looking forward to seeing you there!
