Calgary Acoustic Music Jam (CAMJAM) is a great place to meet passionate musicians, of all skill levels, who share your desire to play, sing and socialize.

If you have a basic understanding of an instrument (any acoustic instrument - not just guitar), and can play in a group environment, this is the place to be!

Here you can meet and join in with other musicians in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Because there will be different levels of musicians in attendance, it's a chance to learn off of each other. It's also an opportunity for those with more advanced skills to showcase their talents.

 


The General Requirements For Our Group Are:

  • Have a basic understanding of music.
  • Be able to play your instrument in a group setting.
  • Read, understand and adhere to Jam Etiquette.
  • Host your own Jam if one doesn't already suit your schedule, genre, skill level or location in the city. Any member can schedule a Jam. Hosting a Jam instructions.
  • Participate at the Jams as well as in the Discussions Groups because our group success depends on your input/feedback.
  • Review the list of Frequently Asked Questions to see if your question has already been answered before emailing a CAMJAM Organizer.
  • Have some patience because we all aren't Eric Clapton.
  • Have lots of fun because we're all a friendly bunch!

If you are joining because you have an instrument and want to learn how to play it, this isn't the place. We ask that you are at least able to chord along with the group. However, we do have beginners Jams on occasion and if there is enough interest, we'd host more of them. Feel free to host some yourselves!

Singers are also highly encouraged to join - even if they don't play an instrument!


User Fees: User fees are optional. There are costs involved with maintaining the web site and domain name. From time to time we will ask for help in covering these costs. Our goal is to cover our costs only and not become a business venture. If you pay the optional $20 membership fee, you will receive a membership card with your name on it which entitles you to sponsorship deals and discounts as they're offered. Members can see our financial status at anytime by navigating under More > Money.

Discussion Groups: A lot of useful information is posted in the Discussion Groups and you are encouraged to participate and add your own too. You're guaranteed to discover and learn something new. It's where we communicate with one another, post guitar tabs, song lyrics and chords, music write-ups, tutorials, videos and anything music related. It's the heart of our group outside our Jams.

Polls/Feedback: Please also take a second to answer the poll questions we post under the "More > Polls" navigation menu. We use this information to gauge the group's interest levels in order to help improve the overall CAMJAM experience. Also, your input and suggestions are taken to heart. If you have ideas on how to improve things, don't be shy, be proactive and let us know your thoughts. This is a community of passionate people, so your participation is welcome!

Help Promote CAMJAM: Don't forget to spread the word about CAMJAM to your fellow musician friends and help grow the group. All are welcome!

CAMJAM's URL: You can now find our group through the URL: http://www.camjam.ca instead of http://www.meetup.com/camjam. The later will still work too however, whatever is easier for you...

Hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,
The CAMJAM Organizers.
