Play some 2013 Blues.....

Time to play some 2013 Blues! We had a great time last month with some great new folks showing up, a great turnout by a lot of our seasoned vets--in other words anyone who's come more than once--the rhythym section was tight, great vocals, even a world premier of a hot new Xmas blues tune [thanks Alan!]. So lets keep it rolling and do it again...

Same format as always: lead a song if you'd like or suggest one; take a solo or just play backup, or just listen and enjoy if you'd like. Feel free ahead of time to post songs for us to practice as well. Participate at whatever level you're comfortable with, this is about getting together to create community to enjoy this music we love and share it with others. The more we contribute the better the jam for all.

If you haven't attended yet some things to note are all instruments are welcome but the house doesn't provide (except vocals mic) so you have to bring your own, but acoustic players can use the house mic if they want to solo. Also as this is a community jam all levels are welcome so it won't be as tight as some open mic jams are, the 'performance' aspect is less important than including everybody. We want to keep this balance, there are plenty of good open mic nights around town. That said, we've got a great core group of musicians that come out, and we routinely have newcomers show up that are wonderful people and great musicians as well... If you think you're not so great don't be intimidated,  I've seen a lot of people really improve by playing with others. So hope to see you there!

    Had a good time. Since it was first time, wasn't sure what to expect. Always impressed by the amount of talent in the area. Mike, loved hearing the flute!

      Seriously CRAZY, Chuck. You MAY wanna bring a bigger amp - or mic yours. Is Charles bringing drums?

    I uploaded 2 tunes from the last hullaballoo in the Files section of the board under the More tab. I have 3 more, but they are too big to fit on the site. The video's probably too big for the youtube. Should be a good time tomorrow with close to 100 strings and 30 reeds. Somebody should kidnap somebody from a drum circle before the jam and bring them with. Play nice, have fun and get along!

    Hey Karla - If you can post your .pdf for "Summertime" under the "More" section under "Files" in the light blue bar above and I will make sure I have your chords under my fingers. I believe I do a simple version in Am...can you sing it?
