Sunday Guitar Picnic in Central Park... awww yeah!!!

This will be our last big picnic of the season!!! We can have a huge crowd at the group picnic, so it's an excellent first event to meet our group if you're a newbie, and also an excellent event to find people to play with, and learn from other guitarists!


-read the weather beforehand and use your own best judgement (the meetup will remain on the site even in bad weather)

-be especially kind and welcoming to new members (our group is famous for that!)

Our traditions continue:

-the picnics are always FREE

-bring enough food/drinks to share for yourself and a few friends. When you RSVP, please include what you plan to bring. Coolers are always welcome!

-the picnics are open to all levels, ages, and even people who don't play guitar, friends, lovers, dogs, and babies (we do regret that poorly-behaved children will walk the plank...)

-printable pages of songs with the lyrics and chords are the second two files in the "files" section of the meetup!

Looking forward!!!

    Had a great time. Wasn't in the mood for peace and love, so my new buddy Kevin and I splintered off to rock out on some Zeppelin, and Hendrix. We were then joined by another guy whose name escapes me, and moved on to Sabbath, Metallica, Motorhead, Guns n' Roses and Slayer. Wonderful afternoon of guitar in the park.

      Absolutely man. I've been listening to and playing 'Bron Yr Air Stomp', so thanks for reintroducing to that one. If you have any desire to check out the next open Mic let me know. I need a second player for 'No Quarter'

    Now that the summer Sunday picnic is gone, does anyone know of any other guitar groups? I still need to get my fix

    Bergen County Acoustic Musicians (BCAM) will join forces with the awesome NYC Guitar group for a joint Meetup Picnic!.
    Have uploaded a great collection of Woodstock tunes to the MORE>FILES section of the Meetup website.

    Thanks to John H for his great organizational skills putting the books together! See books 2012 BCAM and 2013 BCAM-Woodstock.

    Looking forward to a great day of music!
