NOVA SInger-Songwriter Meet Up

Our next meeting will be July 14.  Details are as follows:

1.  Date/Time:  July 14 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

2.  Location:  American Bistro and Coffeehouse, 10407 Main Street, Fairfax.

3.  Format:  Bring your completed songs, works in progress, or ideas to share.

For those of you who have joined the group but not attended a meeting I encourage you to come out and join us. We welcome everyone regardless of skill level, experience, or musical ability. You do not have to perform your songs if you don't want to, you can always just share in the conversation. BOTTOM LINE, folks, if you are serious about becoming a better songwriter you need to spend time with other songwriters. Hope to see you all there.

    Songwriter Grace Pettis is having a Songwriting workshop at Ebenezers Coffeehouse in DC: August 5-8. I can't go, but it looks interesting. http://www.gracepettis.com/#!workshops/c1q9i

    Oops. I meant IMO. That's what I get for using Internet slang. :)

    Neil Finn of Crowded House fame is MIO one of the world's great songwriters. He writes absolutely beautiful, evocative songs that work with a full band or with just Neil and his guitar. It doesn't hurt that he has an amazing clear, tenor voice. Here is very cool clip of him doing a very pretty tune called "Anytime" with a volunteer from the audience. :)

      Cool! What is this thing? (He asks, just before he begins googling... =)

      Uses your voice and your guitar chords to create multiple realistic harmony profiles when you play. Pretty cool.

    Thanks to everyone who attended this past Sunday. I enjoyed hearing everyone's songs and getting your insights. I love sharing music with friends so attached is a clip of Shawn Mullins who I think is a truly superb singer-songwriter doing a beautiful song called "Shimmer." Every time I watch this clip I marvel at Shawn's amazing voice and his ability to stir my emotions with just vocals and guitar. Hope you enjoy!

      Thanks, Mike, for organizing this. It was nice to meet everyone. I feel inspired to pick up my guitar since the meeting and now my fingers are hurting.

    I posted by new song Tax Return in the discussions section of this group for study, dissection and feedback. I think its a good idea to use the discussions section to share ideas between meetups.

    I have a question about the meeting. I got an email saying it was 10-12. Is it now from 1-3?

  • Mike R.

    Stick with it, Dan. Your songs are too good to end up unfinished. I keep thinking maybe we should organize some kind of a showcase event for the group. Some kind of big party for friends and family. Could be fun. Maybe that will help to motivate you. :)

  • Daniel M.

    I'm excited. I have some odds and ends. Starting to lose steam in completing songs, so it'll be good to be inspired by some talented folks.

    Hope to see everyone on Sunday! I have several new songs I hope to share and look forward to hearing everyone else's work.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
