Blues, Jazz, Rock guitarist. Jam at various blues jams, play jazz with like minded players from the Real Book and a member of "Jazz in The Living Room" Mill Pond House, St. James, Suffolk County. Have played in numerous rock groups.
Have Les Paul, Strat and Fender Blues Deville Tweed along with various boxes
For Jazz I use The Real Book, fifth edition covering jazz standards. Suggestions include: 1) C Jam Blues = Ellington 2) Take The A Train = Ellington 3) Satin Doll - Ellington 4) Blue Bossa - Kenny Dorham 5) Blue Monk - Theloneous Monk 6) All of Me = Simone and Marks 7) Green Dolphin Street -Washington 8) Triste - Antonio Carlos Jobim 9) Up Jumped Spring - Freddie Hubbard Would be great for all ages from beginners to pros to be able to improvise over changing jazz chords. Horn players would especially like this forum. Would need the appropriate Real Book for the instrument you are playing.
Have jammed with the group before. Songs are posted under the top menu MORE> Files Suggest Crossroads, Before You Accuse Me, Key to the Highway, Since I'v Been Loving You and any 12 bar blues songs.
Great that we are establishing Blues, Jazz and Rock jams seperately so we can focus on specific genres of music
