I think it would be easier if those who have attended our meetups, and are familiar with what we have been working on, would suggest (post here) 2 - 6 new songs that they would like the group to work on at the next meetup. This way we can all look at the tabs before the meetup and each bring a copy of the tabs . We could be ready to work on these new songs as well as bring the tabs from the songs we have already worked on . This should help us to have a more organized meetup. Any thoughts, pro-con ?? thx, jim

To make it easier we can use the site www.chordie.com as a source for our chord sheets. The quality is generally pretty good and the chords are usually over the correct words. It has the added advantage that there is a drop down box on the right hand side of the page that lets you transpose the song to another key.

When you pick songs pick ones that are type CHORDS not type tab TAB. The CHORDS sheets are more suitable for use in a group setting. Of course feel free to learn all the fancy licks from the tab so you can take the solo breaks.wink

The site also has the ability to group songs into custom songbooks. We can use this when newbies come along we can point them to what we've been working on.

Now, Somebody suggest some song.

Greetings,,,

The other meet-ups I've attended are successful in part because they "post" to the files section and use it...
if you want to bring a song to the group...that's where you put it...If you you are late posting, make and bring
enough copies for the group.

One of the group uses the "theme" approach: next meet-up the music of Bob Dylan, Neil, or early Beetles...it really gives it focus.

I'm new to this group, I anticipate someone has already started a discussion of where you are going to get together when the weather changes..

thanks
looking forward to it...

Here's a few more:

Help by the Beatles

As Tears Go By by the Rolling Stones (ignore the Bm chord, sounds wrong to me).

America by Simon and Garfunkel


Stan: The song are links to chord sheets. Practice them in the keys you see when you click the link.

Bob: I have posted some songs to the files section. Some of us have been bringing copies of songs to the meetings. Themed meetups are a good idea. We have talked about the the cold weather issue, but don't yet have a solution.

I'm collecting a group of what I think are acoustically suited songs from a variety of 60s-70s artists. I'm sure there are already versions of some of these floating around in various member's binders. I'll pick some and bring multiple copies for the next meeting. If we all do then we're good to go. Just try to keep the genres varied. Thanks, Alan

Could you post your list here when you get it together or even better links to chord sheets so people can get familiar with the changes ahead of time.
