Next Meetup

Let's Talk Songwriting and Musical Collaboration!
It's time to practice/learn some piano/ukulele and work on some songs, so come on over! We can share our original songs and collaborate on a new song or two. If someone has a song that they'd like to work on together, even better! I've got an extra digital piano or two, so feel free to leave yours at home. Guitars are welcome, but no amps. (Have to be respectful of the neighbors!) If it's a beautiful day, we may head up to the roof deck. Any questions, please just ask! Gary MBTA: My place is two blocks south of the Charles/MGH Red Line station. Come out the main station entrance and turn left. Cross the double-street (with CVS just on your left), head two blocks south on Charles St, then turn right onto Pinckney St. At 145 Pinckney you'll see a glass entranceway. Come on in! PARKING: My street is a stone's throw from Charles St, which is all metered parking. On Sundays the meters are not fed. However, this is still Boston, so coming by the MBTA is always recommended. FOOD: Feel free to bring your lunch or any other food or drink or snacks, for yourself or to share.

What we're about

Hello - WELCOME TO THE GROUP!! The intent and goal of this meetup is to nurture musical ability and talent and gain more theoretical and practical experience, play out , and for musician networking... We go to open mics and have shows periodically with other meetup groups and on some Sundays a jam/rehearsal to jam or rehearse for performances. Music is a powerful force for good in the world.

Lets get together and JAM!!! See list of standard songs in the Music Jam Lists

This group is for musicians and aspiring musicians who are looking to play with others and have fun ........developing skills for playing with a vocalist or band. We can help develop guitar, bass, keys etc. techniques (reading a lead sheet, building a solo, hooking into the groove, jam, improvise, learn & CREATE songs, and learn and the dynamics of playing with a group).

We will also go out together and listen to live music around around Boston, and play at open mics.

Join us if you want to have a great time playing music with some great folks! We focus on Rock, Folk, Blues and Popular music. We will take the first hour of the meetups if requested to focus on theory, practice, technique, instrumentation , arranging and other musicianship essentials.

This is a no pressure group. The group will concentrate on material appropriate for beginners and intermediates to the experience of playing with others and playing with a band. We will all commit to being patient, non-judgmental, and supportive. As we develop, we can go together and perform at open mics.

SINGERS, we especially will need you.

Hope to see you'all soon!
