    I'm not in charge of the sound, but my understanding is that we will have amplification we can plug into if necessary. I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong.

      Hi! I'd like to play The Glory of Love with everyone. I'm new to playing (2 wks) but I downloaded the song and have been practicing. My question...is there a particular strumming pattern I need to know and what tempo should I be striving for?

      July 29, 2014

    • June P.

      No particular pattern Pat... when it gets to over 100 people, it really doesn't matter, see you there!

      August 3

  • June P.

    SNHUG is manning the Welcome Booth from Noon to 3pm...please volunteer for an hour if you can... it's really a fun way to meet interesting people! (Mike I have you down from noon to 1pm, thanks very much!)

    July 26, 2014

  • June P.

    We play from 3:30 to 4pm and then we introduce the song to set the NH Strum record... if you plan to perform with us, please let us know by August 2... we'll be scheduling practices soon, thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
