    The group was too heterogeneous in terms of abilities and objectives. Some wanted to sing songs with some instrumentation. Others were mostly focused on playing guitar up the neck. It would be better to define the group more carefully.

      The nice part is that there were people able to improvise a solo. My experience is that usually all the chord strummers / singers cant solo, and those that can solo are a rarer breed. I was glad that for both songs I tried out, someone was able to add instrumentals. Transitioning from rhythm to solo on time is a neat trick

      Ken, I can appreciate what you say. As a singer/strummer I am jealous of those who can solo. So I am working on developing a capacity to do the same. The bluegrass jamming class I am in is perfect because you are expected to do both. Perhaps the composition of the group yesterday encourages this. It was a nice group of people. Thanks, Bill.

    Looking forward to meeting other folks who like to play. Ive been taking guitar lessons for several years and am a solid intermediate chord strummer. Also can feel my way around the piano alright.

    While there is a banjo in the picture, I will be bringing a guitar. I live in Arlington, and have been meaning to join you all for some time. I guess the stars have finally aligned. I'm mostly a bluegrass, folk, old-timey'er, but I love listening to and playing just about any kind of acoustic music. I'm really looking forward to it.
