  • Long Beach/Orange County Bluegrass for Beginners Meetup

     I would change the name of this meet up; it is very much a more intermediate + jam (as opposed to the one at Mile Sq park), especially once most began to stand instead of sit with occasional aid of notation/stands (in order to hear each other). I presume this is a common pattern for the group. Very song dominant (as opposed to fiddle tunes/instrumentals). All good until singing in other than G commences, then a capo or good chord patterns up the neck required (or knowing the song). Good practice taking a turn at breaks, for the brave and prepared. A lot of fun, nonetheless, but perhaps not as much for true beginners or those of a more shy disposition.

     Some of the songs were too fast for a beginner. But, perhaps that's an incentive to improve.

     If you don't like parking on the street (no sidewalks), you can buy a yearly parking pass for Mile Square Park for $35.
