Hometown: Meyerland - Willowbend
July 31, 2014
Make a little music, meet some singers, and new players.
Guitars, and other things with strings.
Intermediate, but shameless enough to try anything.
.. Only 9 members actually showed up, which is about max saturation for the "large" room we were in. We had bass, drums, piano, 3 very good singers, and 5 guitarists. We had a pretty good time after a somewhat rocky start. However, we need to plan for a better way of sharing songs. Playing a song that you know, then shouting out the chord changes as you play ain't the best way. They have a 50" monitor on the wall, and we ended up pulling up song tabs on the internet and scrolling down the file as we played. I had my songbook on a thumb drive created on a PC that wouldn't work on their MAC equipment. . . .. There is a 'Files' section under the 'More' tab at the top of this page where one can post a song chart (PDF's are best). I've posted one already. Post your songs so we can prepare for next time. The meet-up group CASUAL MUSICIANS OF HOUSTON, that several of us belong to, has an archive of hundreds of songs charts that can be accessed by those members. Sign up there for access.
