What we're about
Friendly and fun group with sole focus on practicing and playing songs together. Meets 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings in Broadlands VA*, to play songs - singing along is optional. Mostly easy popular music (examples include Brown Eyed Girl, My My Hey Hey, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Wagon Wheel) plus whatever participants would like to play. We usually have about 5-6 players, with varying ability ranging from advanced-beginners, to people who've been playing off and on for years, on up to (tolerant) experienced performers. Not a good setting for learning from scratch but OK if you know most of the open chords and a few strum patterns. We play from Ultimate-Guitar type pages of lyrics that show letters for chords - the songbook we use is posted in the Files section. Bring: guitar, capo, songbook if you have it, music stand if you have one (we can share if needed). Some members bring additional instruments such as harmonica, bass guitar, mandolin - these are welcome too!
*Broadlands is a section of Ashburn located about 15 minutes west of Dulles Airport.
