Introductory Meeting; share a few songs

  • February 16, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In this first meeting, we should share a few songs we think most people will know. Think standards like the Beatles, Stones, Motown. Also, try and think about songs that are not too complex, at least in the beginning. I think a simple song performed tightly with harmonies can go a long way.

This first meeting is in a Library so we should only bring a couple of acoustic guitars. I am local, so I can bring two and we can share. There will be no mikes or amps and we want to keep the volume to a reasonable level. We may find that meeting elsewhere at other times is a good idea.

Food and Drinks are absolutely NOT allowed inside the library, so please don't bring any. There are restaurants and pubs nearby for afterwards if you like.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Thanks, 

David

    Okay, now I feel like a total imbecile.... I didn't even check all my calendars (yes, yes, I know-- I should put everything on my i-Phone, according to my kids), but I have a baby celebration for a friend's new grandson this Sunday, the 16th-- feast or famine in my life. Can't attend this one, but PLEASE keep me posted for the future... damn..... Have fun, everyone!

      Will do. Please do us the favor of changing your RSVP to no so that someone else can attend.

    Hi, all-- I was glad to get the e-mail with the addition of Motown..love all the songs that were chosen! Since we are clearly a group of individuals who love the Beatles and Motown, I'm wondering if anyone else was at the "Fab Four" concert this past Friday evening at Bergen Pac in Englewood. They were amazing! Not only did they sound fantastic (if you closed your eyes, you would have been thrown back to the '60s!), but each of the group members spoke and had the movements of the real fab four! Great evening. And about 2 years ago, I was at a Motown Tribute at Carnegie Hall-- now THAT was truly great! Surprise guests included Dionne Warwick and one of the Four Tops (is everyone hearing "Bernadette" in their heads?!). Did anyone else attend that one?
    Finally (hope I'm not boring you all), will the lyrics to the chosen songs be available or should we google the lyrics and bring them?

      Thanks, Zelmo! :-) Rather than print all of them... could you tell me which ones? Thanks so much-- I never realized those options on a meetup site! Ciao!

    Glad you added Motown - Funk is always fun. If it's voices and accoustic guitar, Let It Be, Yesterday, Imagine.

      Since this is the first meeting at the Library and I had to go through an application process and agree to all their policies, I need to say I don't think so. But if you ask and they allow it, that will be on them. I would like to be allowed to come back.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
