Survival Guitar is a method of playing that relies on listening and improvisation to help everyone play with more confidence and to create interesting and appropriate parts in a group setting. This meetup is an informal group class that will cover many aspects of ensemble playing--from tuning to theory, solo & rhythm playing, arranging, etiquette, and whatever other directions the group may want to explore. We will build a musical toolbox and fill it with all kinds of tools to help each musician bring his/her own feeling and style into each performance instead of copying what's "in the book." For beginner & intermediate guitarists, acoustic or electric. Volume balance and blending will be part of what we cover, so all are welcome. We will play, jam, learn, laugh, and share. Come join us!
