What Mark D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Some thoughts to make things even better: 1) Let's post songs we're interested in advance on this list! That way people will be able to review them in advance instead of learning on the fly. Give the key you intend to play it in and maybe the chords, or a link to the version. This will be a tremendous help. 2) Ideally, choose songs with a simple chord structure, because the level of musicianship is mixed - the simpler the better, generally speaking. But it doesn't rule out more complex songs, especially if we can look at them in advance. 3) It should be clear when someone is soling vs. playing rhythm. Solos should last 4 - 8 bars, for example. 4) When the solo is done, signal for someone else takes over and everyone else should go back to playing rhythm. This gives everyone a chance to solo - even the less skilled among us. 5) The above doesn't apply to wind instruments wrt solos.
