Well on this day in July the women score some points with the first women's rights convention (Seneca Falls, NY 1848), Geraldine Ferraro got the Democratic VP nomination, Lynn Ripplemeyer was the first woman to captain a 747 across the Atlantic (1984) and Christa McAuliffe chosen first school teacher to fly the space shuttle (1985); unfortunately Mary Jo Kopechne decided to hide in the backseat of Ted Kennedy's car (1969). In 1913 Billboard publishes earliest known "Last Weeks's 10 Best Sellers among Popular Songs", "Melinda's Wedding Day" is #1 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4Sv4-ZR8rc check it out!). With all this as inspiration bring some tabs, 12-15 copies is usually required. And practice up for our showoff time and remember it's a forgiving group. The agenda for the meetup is:
7:30-9:00 - 1 1/2 hours of our usual selection of songs you think the group would like to play or learn. Try to keep the songs to five chords or less; try to avoid C#dim7's and that ilk. You can track the number of people coming on our website and bring appropriate number of copies.
9:00-9:30ish - Showoff time - got a song you or others in the group have been practicing together and think you are ready for prime time, here's your chance.
9.30pm-till: Socializing - when showoff time is done those interested can adjourn to the Harry's a couple of stores away from Groove.
