Howdy, Music-minded folks! Ready for another jam? Want to get your mojo workin' through playing music and singing your heart out? Well, as promised, here's our monthly Tuesday night jam where you can practice licks, impress others, sit back and listen, go in a corner and work out a rif with a friend and come back to try it out on us. There's no worry about how long its been since you've last played- this is an inclusive group that has members from all ends of the spectrum in terms of levels of experience. What is common is that we share the love of music and the motivation to play with others... while making new friends! I remember what it was like to be so shy that I couldn't sing in front of ANYONE... and my hands would shake if I had to play guitar in front of another person... including my guitar teacher (too many years ago). Now you can't keep me down, even if my guitar playing never got that great! (Right, Don? John? Frank? Carol? Karen?)

Here's the deal: Come with a buck (yes, one dollar!) to help defray cost of the Meetup itself, alongside some libation you might like to share (if 'ya can- if it's convenient- cuz many of us can't get dinner right before the jam)- (finger food type stuff is easiest), and/ or any kind of drink you'd like to share. Soda? Wine? All fine. (Heck; you can drop by the .99 cent store and get a litre for a buck!)

We'll start soon- probably 'round 8. I might have this in my backyard, which is massive- I'll have a sign out front w/ an arrow to the side gate; walk down the side of the house to the backyard and thar we'll be!

The classic "Song Circle" format of going 'round the circle, clockwize, allowing for each person to share a song or opt to pass, enables everyone to have equal access. It's one song per person, but we all jam on one another's song, and there should be a few 'go-rounds' the group, so you could initiate probably at least three songs. Hope I'm makin' sense. :*}

Bring your instrument(s), your libation(s), your golden voice, music to share (if you can- that's so cool!), and your positive vibe and be ready to lift your spirit with others in song! Welcome!
