This group is for acoustic lovers who are self trained to those who are classically trained. Advanced beginners to professionals are invited. (Advanced beginner meaning players should be able to move smoothly through 3-4 basic chords).


While the name says "guitar", this group is acoustic in general. There's always room for bass, mandolin, harmonica, tambourine/shakers, keyboards, and so on. Also singers are welcomed with or without an instrument!
All styles are welcome and encouraged to join. As of this moment, I’m envisioning our group meeting 1-2 times per month.


To start with, we will meet at The Newark Arts Alliance in Newark. They have offered us some space on Sundays from 12:30 a.m. -approx 3 pm. During the nicer weather we may be able to meet in members backyards or parks, again, going with the flow. (Staying in and around Newark). We're open to ideas.


What will we play? Whatever you’d like! A day or two before the meet-up, please visit the site to see how many people are coming. If 10 are signed up, then each member should print off 10 copies of 4 songs. If 30 people are coming, 1-2 songs should be plenty. Please bring your music stand and please try to limit songs to 1-2 pages. If you aren’t familiar with Chordie.com, check it out. Its a good place to find songs with chords. Basically we will go around the room, and each member will start us off on the song they have chosen.

To quote Planet Fitness, ‘this is a judgement free zone’ meaning you can sing, even if like me, you can’t! It’s all about having fun!
