MKE Guitar Meetup

Welcome to 2014 and the next MKE Guitar Meetup! We recently saw the Coens Bros music movie. Maybe a song from it next time. And sang for two hours in Dec. We are always looking to grow members and music. We are moving to a central bar that has an off room we can use. Von Trier on North Ave. We are outgrowing homes. Have a beer and get ready to play and sing. We hope this is fun. As before, bring 12 copies of a song you like. We will try most things. We sing and play with heart.

We have talked a little about an original music group monthly also. If this interests you, speak up. It would be a safe space with great tunes.

The other group will continue and is powerful and fun.

We will see all who can attend at Von Trier on Tuesday Jan 21 at 6:30. Salute.

    I'm leaking out again, what with the forecast calling for well below zero tomorrow eve.

    Keven, I have not forgotten that I still owe for the JCC rental. Thank you for your patience.

    Hi, I'm new to the group. I'll be there tomorrow, with 2 friends that just want to listen. Hope this is OK. :)

    • Kevin

      Welcome Jerry. Others have come to listen. It's fine and something for us to talk about moving forward. We do like singers, not just guitarists. Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow. Kevin

    Hello everyone! Jerry Bakkus here out of the Waukesha area. I've been playing a little over 20 years (with about 7 years of formal lessons way back in the day). Just found this group and thought I'd give it a try. I won't be able to make the meeting tomorrow but hopefully will make the next one :)

      See you next time Jerry. We have a lot of fun. Sing and play into the night. Take care. Kevin

    I added the chord charts for Wonderwall by Oasis to the files section if anyone would like to get a leg up on this song. You'll need a capo if you want to play the same key as the recording.

    1 · January 14, 2014

    • Julio

      Hate to replay to my own post but I can't edit my previous. If you're having a hard time finding the files page you need to hover your mouse over the "More" tab at the top and a flyout will appear can you can select "Files"

    • Kevin

      Thanks Julio, helpful. I'm always on my phone, but I'll try to check it out.

    Where could I upload some sheet music in case some people would like to get a head start on a song?

    1 · January 12, 2014

    • Kevin

      I asked Julio, she said it might be in the files section. Is there an add function? I'll try to later. You try too, I like the idea.

      January 13, 2014

    • Julio

      Done. I threw the chord sheet together real quick. let me know if you see anything weird lol.

    Kevin,
    Do you have to be 21 to attend? Adia is interested, if she doesn't have to work, but she is 20...

    January 8, 2014

    • Kevin

      I will check Elaine. It was good to have Adia last time. Many bars are okay with underage to eat and cavort. I'll let you know.

      January 8, 2014

    • Kevin

      I called and they said no minors. That is one knock on venue. Sorry Adia. We are checking noise level, participation and many other things. We will always be trying to find the best venues.

    Was sad to have missed the movie (( at least I had the snow shovelling to keep me warm ... =/ )) Anyhow, not sure whats on my schedule the 21st yet, still want to at least stop in & say 'hey' ... and incase I didnt make it wanted to share some news that y'all might find interesting...

    Last time I was at BigHead Brewery ( on 62nd & State in Wauwatosa ) they mentioned they were looking for a guitar player for the weekends... I have no idea what style they might be looking for or if its a paying gig... but wanted to forward the info.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
