What we're about

Welcome to the Acoustic Music Community!

We are a supportive community of musicians living all over the greater Denver/Boulder area, who meet regularly for a variety of music-centered activities including song circles, jams, performances, musical pot-lucks, song-writing sessions, and instructional groups. Events are held in numerous locations around Denver & Boulder, including private homes, churches and local businesses. Members are encouraged to host their own events, or suggest new events.

We encourage you to RSVP and attend an upcoming event, to develop and share your skills, play/sing/jam with other musicians, make new friends, and learn new songs. All levels of musicians are welcome, from beginner to professional, as are all types of musicians, including guitarists, singers, percussionists, fiddlers, bassists, and pianists. Many types of music are played from bluegrass to rock, and members can post chord and lyric sheets for songs under https://www.meetup.com/Acoustic-Music-Commun... [MORE --> FILES] to share with other members.

Member dues of $5 a year are requested, to help pay website fees, buy basic sound equipment for our group’s performances, and have at least one really great party/jam/hootenanny a year. Most events are free to attend, but some may have an associated cost, particularly instructional events and some performances. We also ask that you support the local businesses that host our events by purchasing food & drinks if applicable.

The goals of this group are to:
• Make friends around our shared love of music
• Improve our musical skills
• Improve our self-confidence
• Encourage each other to reach our musical goals
• Develop an appreciation for various genres including traditional and contemporary blues, folk, rock, pop, country, jazz, bluegrass and world music.
• Provide information about the local music scene where members can perform and enjoy listening to others.

Denver Singer Songwriter Meetup

Needs a location

Hello everyone!

***Sadly, because of staffing issues, we're not back at Eloise May library, but Koelbel Library instead, I apologize for the change***

Here are some optional prompts if you're "stuck" or just are looking for a fun way to challenge yourself or create something.
Have words but need some chords?

**Keeping these the same as last week, since no one needed the prompt**

Have words but need some chords?
Chords: Gm Gm Cm7 Dm - Listen to them here: https://chordchord.com/preview/YbOpO_nsN
Key of Gm
BPM: Around 150

Have chords/riffs but need some lyrics? - For inspiration, try this: Beauty by Khalil Gibran

Need a subject to write/make a song about? - Subject:
Summer time, Letting go, self-deception

And for bonus, here are some words you don't hear all the time to sneak into your lyrics/song(s): Twinkies, soda, booze

Note: This is just a songwriting exercise for fun, not required by any means!
---------------------------
Our sessions have typically been going like this:

- Sharing original songs that are completed. Followed by constructive criticism and feedback.

- Helping individuals work out parts of their songs (either lyrics or music) as a group

- Playing covers and songs we want to play. Jamming out, hob knobbing and talking about music.

Please, if you have a cover you'd like us to cover, 👇put it in the comments below 👇. Or, put a link to the chords/lyrics in this Google Doc I've created just for the group: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1c5CBmusHLtbpr3w47SRg6mYhd2efVnpGWXz3Le4ie0U/edit?usp=sharing

Saturday Jam is back!

Needs a location

It's almost Spring, time to get out and about.

As always, new people welcome, and new tunes are always a joy!
And now, back to mask free.
You can wear one if you like, but no longer required.

Broomfield Eagles Club is right near the curve on 120th, behind Great Scott's and Grease Monkey. (See map)

Not much signage, but look for the building with the windows in the roof on the South side of the road.

If you come in the back it's straight ahead and down the stairs.

We'll be downstairs in the big room.

Bring your guitar or other instrument of choice and/or your singing voice for a laid-back jam session. We'll go around the room and let each person choose a song for the group. We plan to use a projector to display lyrics and chords from the Ultimate Guitar Tabs app. Please come prepared with a handful of songs to suggest - rock, pop, country, folk, blues, jazz, gospel, etc. You may want to check out Ultimate Guitar Tabs ahead of time to make sure the song you want is available and to identify the best version, or email me and I'll get it in a format we can use.

If you have a tab you want to try put it in this list and we'll check it out and see if it will work.
