Beginner's Jam at La Calle Doce in Lakewood! NEW VENUE!


You've been to the Free Beginner's Workshop and NOW take the next step!

Continue what you learned and continue practicing the chords with the group for each song before we play from the FREE Beginner's Jam Book.

**BEGINNERS JAM BOOK - The Three Chord Beginner Jam Book. Every song in the book has three chords or less. Please print or download your own copy to your tablet, we will not have extra copies.

You will find the FREE Beginners Jam Book in the files section - from the main menu choose "more" then "files" - file name: Beginner Jam Book.  You must be signed in with your user id and password to view and download the book. 

Join us at La Calle Doce!  They call themselves "The Home of Mexican Seafood".  "What Mexican food is supposed to be" is how fans describe this family-owned duo specializing in Veracruz-style cuisine featuring "fresh, spicy" seafood as well as "classic" Tex-Mex, warmly served in an old house in Oak Cliff and a recently remodeled strip-mall space in Lakewood.

Seating is limited to 40 - be sure to RSVP for yourself and any guest. 

With freshly made tortillas, warm and crunchy chips served with an assortment of salsas, a massive list of delicious seafood dishes, it's easy to see why people love this place. SAVE ROOM FOR THE FLAN!

For ease of serving our large group, we will be eating off of the Lunch menu - view here - 

There is NO CHARGE for this meetup! We do ask that you patronize our host restaurant by purchasing a meal or a drink, as they charge us nothing for use of their private room.

 La Calle Doce - Lakewood

1925 Skillman Ave.,
Dallas, TX 75206


Lunch: 1pm - 2pm

**Bring** the following:

    Thanks Leslie, I think I'll get it right next time. The hostess was like "oh, there were a lot of people here yesterday with instruments!".

    Ed, that sounds like something I would do! Hope to meet you at another meet up. Shall we give you a personal "wake up" call?

    I found out today, Sunday, that the jam was yesterday! I was the only one in the restaurant with a ukulele. Sorry I missed you all.

    Hi, Mark & Kathy, I had determined that this year I would be involved in the uke group from the beginning of the year. However, this time I have to pass. I strained my back earlier this week and am trying to get better. Hopefully I will see you in several weeks for the workshop on 2-22. I counting on being much better by then. Until then, have a great time today!

    Do you know how long this event typically lasts? (Planning timing). Thanks.

      Lunch is from 1-2, jam is 2-4. However, you don't have to stay for all if you can't, but you do get a better seat if you come to all.

    • Mark L.

      Thanks, Kathy -- Yes, we are running from 1-4, with lunch from 1-2.

    I changed my G string on my tenor to an octave lower (for picking songs out). I'm bringing it tomorrow. If you've been contemplating doing this or are just interested, you're welcome to try it out. Gives the cords a nice rich sound.
