This is a group for new and experienced musicians in and around Reading who want to meet other musicians, play together, form bands, share skills or progress their talent.
My name is Dan and I've been playing guitar on and off for over 12 years. If you're a musician, you may know what it's like: You get into playing for a while and then something distracts you and stop playing months, may be even years. It can be hard at times to stay motivated and keeping practising. My plan to keep motivated is meet other musicians and get playing with them! Having been members of other groups on meetup.com it seemed like the perfect tool to get musicians together and play.
My hope is to create a group that is relaxed or as serious as its members want to make it. I think laid-back jam sessions or trips to a local open mic night would be a good way to get the group started. However, I think there would definitely be a great opportunity for forming bands or similarly ambitious projects, if people are interested in that.
I'd like this group to be suitable for levels of skill and experience, so even if you don't play an instrument, sing or write songs at present, you're very welcome to join, as long as you're interested in learning. Perhaps you will be inspired to go out and start practising.
