Calling all Musicians.
Got an acoustic instrument?
Sing a bit?
Bring your instrument and/or voice along to The Nova Scotia Hotel - buy a drink and come on upstairs. We have exclusive use of the Function Room to have some fun, play in front of others, be creative and learn a bit.
It's totally free for our exclusive use (the pub will obviously expect us to have a few drinks to make it worth their while).
You may also be interested in another Jam in Bath 11th December at St James Wine Vaults - http://www.meetup.com/The-Bath-Everything-Meetup-Group/events/152033122/
The first two get-togethers (one in Bath, the other here) went really well.
I recommend, that if you want to play something and wish others to join in then bring a few copies of the lyrics/chords. Maybe even post a few ideas on this page, so others can prepare if they wish. Otherwise, we (sort of) settled on the following list of songs to work with. Take a look, and if you fancy something bring several copies of lyrics and chords (easy enough to find on the web):
* Peaceful Easy Feeling - Eagles
* Horse with no name - America
* Ain't no sunshine - Bill Withers
* Wouldn't it be nice - Beach Boys
* Hey there Delilah - Plain white T's
* Brown-eyed Girl - Van the man
* Atlantic City - Bruce
* So happy together - Turtles
Plus a few other suggestions:
* Groovin' - The Young Rascals
* I get around - Beach Boys
* and, this from Christina http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAUSGv7PCZE it's a song from her native Italy. I think I'd need to be convinced! :-)
Come with an open mind. It may not be what you expect, or it may be more. Perhaps not a traditional "jam" for musicians. But - things will develop, splinters form, Yoko may interfere, at the end of the day, it's good fun and social.
Let me know what you think about having a GOAL to aim for, e.g. next March/April Meet-up musicians (solos, duets, groups, all of us?) put on their own gig in front of an exclusive Meet-up audience. They drink, we play (and drink!), and everybody's happy :-) In this way we can focus our Jam sessions a bit, but still leave them flexible enough for just having a good time - [don't want to get too organised into stressful practice :-) or, maybe you do?]
