*** Please see message board for current status of this Meetup!!
Hi. I took singing/performance classes in the past year and I'd love to find some other people who would like to practice and get better at their instrument. I'm thinking that members should at least be intermediate. I picture this being different than a jam because it might be good for people to pick a song they like and others could practice them, and come together and play. It seems like jams are a little more improvisational (?)
I like a lot of 90s bands and I'd love to practice songs by No Doubt, Fiona Apple, 10,000 maniacs, Cranberries...even Pearl Jam (I know- I'm a female, I shouldn't attempt an Eddie Vedder song- lol). I also like some older country stuff-- Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Jeannie C Riley (Harper Valley PTA!).
I'd like to do lead singing but duets could be fun. I'm learning the autoharp and wouldn't mind playing that sometimes. It's been a while, but I know how to play the flute and could pull off something that's not horribly complicated.
I was planning on organizing practice sessions at Exposition Studios in Culver City, which is a cool rehearsal studio in Culver City. Before scheduling a first session, I just wanted to put this out there and see if this Meetup idea gets any interest. I've never organized a Meetup so not too sure about how this may go. Let me know if you are interested, and we'll go from there!
Maybe later we can think about doing our song(s) at an open mic!
