South London Jam

Join us for our regular jam session in the upstairs function room at The Ship in Borough http://shipborough.co.uk We'll aim to start at around 7pm but feel free to turn up a bit earlier for a pre-jam drink.
We've got a number of regular songs that we can play as default, but please bring a song suggestion (not compulsary though). Try to pick songs that will work well with multiple instruments rather than one voice, one guitar kind of songs if you can. That said, some songs can easily be adapted!
It's a great idea if you can post suggestions here prior to the event so that people can familiarise themselves with the songs. Perhap post a YouTube link and the chords.
We can cover pretty much anything, but the focus will be on folk, bluegrass and country.
I will bring copies of chords for some regular songs, but please try to print chord sheets from the suggestions posted.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 11th!
Julian
Please note that there will be £6 charge for this meetup to cover Miranda's meetup costs and hire of the room for the evening.

    Hello!
    I would love join your regular sessions but unfortunately I dropped my guitar and broke the neck! Does anyone know of a cheap and reliable guitar repair shop around South London?
    Thanks!
