2nd C'mon Down to the Pickin' Parlor gathering - Join Us!

UPDATE: Good news! We're getting a projector! Bad news - we won't have yet by this week's meet up. SO - please bring copies of an acoustic Rock song that you'd like to play/sing etc. Thanks!! See you soon!

What: Meet new friends, see old ones, & make music together. 

This Week's Theme: Acoustic Rock Let's play some of the rock classics unplugged. We've got a couple of songs in mind (e.g., Behind Blue Eyes, Take it Easy, Hotel California, Night Moves, Lola, The Weight) - but bring your ideas too. Songs that lend themselves to a solo "jam" spot will help us give you a chance to shine. PS: We are aiming to have a projector up & ready to go - but just in case, if you've got a song you'd really like to play, you might make a few copies (at least 10) to share with the group. I'll post an update on that too. 

This Week's "Learnin"session (just before the song circle) will highlight the magic of the capo. Learn how to change keys - quickly & confidently - with just the capo. Why? Because YOU learned the chords to song in the key of "G" - but your buddy wants to sing it in "F." Or "C." Sure, you can learn new chords, but you can also just adjust the capo. Capo magic. (Or capodynamics, or capo tranpositions). Where: The Olde Town Pickin' Parlor in Arvada. See: http://www.picknparlor.com/

When: Thursday evening, March 20th; 7pm-9pm (7-7:15ish: "Learnin'"; 7:20ish-9pm: music) (3rd Thursday of each month, mostly). 

What to bring: Bring your instrument(s) of choice, a capo (or borrow/buy one at the store) & a beverage to keep you hydrated. Think of an acoustic rock song you'd like to do; if you'd like, bring a dozen copies of it - we'll keep you posted on the projector. 

As always, this meet up will be hosted by Uncle Kit Simon, (musician, store proprietor, Toby-the-dog's "Dad") & your friend Karen. 

How is the C'mon Down to the Pickin' Parlor"music-gathering different than some of the others? Each month, the C'mon Down meet-up will highlight a different theme. Some months will include the chance to meet & play music with a guest artist. Each meet-up will include an optional 15-20 minute introduction/instruction session that complements the theme and allows participants to grow their talents! We are considering themes based on types of music (e.g. "old folk," "rock" "blues," "Hawaiian" "bluegrass," etc.) &/or skills or an instrument (e.g., "harmonizing," or "intro to ukulele"). C'mon Down!!

    Well I am really sorry to miss this but I have been sick all week and it doesn't look like I'll be better by tomorrow. I have to work all day and I doubt I will feel up to going after work. Hope to see everyone at the next one.
