Let Out a Cheer It's a New Year

What better way to kick off the year than enjoying a meetup.

BRING: Acoustic guitar, music stand, tuner, and 12-15 copies of lyrics/chords sheets for 2 songs of your choice. Also, always good idea to bring a capo and set of extra strings (you never know).

7:00PM - I should have room open for early arrivals.

7:30PM - 9:00 ish - Our usual group play. Around the group we'll go for each to present a song for all to play. In choosing songs try to keep songs to 5 chords or less and avoid unusual chords that the less experienced (like me!) may not know (or show the fretboard diagram for the chord on the chord sheets).

Note: If you're having trouble picking a song that the group hasn't played before, bring copies of something we have done before. Nothing wrong with revisiting song favorites.

9:00 - 9:30 ish - We set aside this time for anyone who wishes to perform a song for the group. You don't have to be a pro or a great singer - passion for the music counts for a lot. Strictly voluntary but it's a great low-key, supportive environment for the experienced and novice to perform.

9:30 - 11:00 ish - After we pack up our gear and straighten up the room, those interested can adjourn to Harry's Burritos restaurant a few doors down for some socializing.

    Alan brought the traditional "Fare Thee Well" last time. Here's a take on it from Mr. Zimmerman: http://youtu.be/VXcYp7dLHms
