I will probably be playing my autoharp (intermediate level of experience) and possibly occasionally hammered dulcimer at beginner level. Possibly back-up vocals.
I look forward to playing with like minded folks in a fun, comfortable, non-intimidating environment...with a notable absence of "rock stars"!
My first and most favorite bluegrass group from the Andy Griffith Show, "The Darlins", aka The Dillards...Old Timey Gospel Bluegrass...Alison Krauss, and The Infamous Stringdusters. I have no expertise here, as I love many musical styles. As I "mature" aka age, I am more drawn to dabble in the Bluegrass genre.
Sheet music, chord sheets, and by ear. No tabs for me, please! :-)
Hi! I am really looking forward to joining this group! I play intermediate level autoharp and beginner hammered dulcimer, as well as other non-bluegrass instruments.
I was nervous about attending to be honest. I was pleasantly surprised! Everyone was warm, friendly, and the atmosphere was really comfortable. It was great to walk in as strangers with instruments, and then to be actually making music together! This meetup was also very well organized, I must say. I encourage all of you who are nervous or hesitant to come....lay your worries on the doorstep, and COME! You will love it, and be warmly welcomed. Hope to meet other newbie jammers at the next meetup!
