What we're about

For those interested in getting together with other amateur musicians? The aim of this group is to help amateur musicians be they total beginners or experts.

• Singers, songwriters and instrumentalist looking to get together to perform projects.

• Did you play flugel horn/guitar years ago and would like to get back into something?

• Music organisations who help amateur musicians improve their musical skills either through regular rehearsals or workshops.

• Have an instrument sat at home and need an incentive to practice? We have four bands at present, the last hour of rehearsals is an open session that is open to all members of DAMM - whatever your musical background/ability.

• We are open to new ideas so if you feel like forming a band or music group come along and let's talk.

“ Only had my guitar 8 months, so was nervous to attend a session....found it great fun and was welcomed and joined in..loved it.."

“ If you're at all nervous about coming and playing or singing with others, whatever your instrument and whatever your standard, then don't be. This is a great group with welcoming musicians and once you've been you'll want to keep coming back. ”

“ What a great bunch! I came along for my first session about 6 weeks ago. I was really nervous but the guys welcomed me in like old friends. I got straight into singing and felt at ease."

Numbers that we will be playing for the open session (if you do have a number that you would particularly like to run, please give us some advance notice and a link to the tabs and a youtube version would help): Wild Wood Take it Easy Black Magic Woman Nutbush City Limits Baker Street Creep Bad Moon Rising The link below will take you to the list with links to youtube and lyrics. We will be happy to play any number from this playlist for the open session. It would be very helpful to select two to three numbers from this list that you would like to try out.

Old Harry's Review Version 3.1

Absolute Music Studio

Old Harry's Review meets again this Thursday. Please come and join us if you fancy playing or singing a song. We are a friendly bunch who enjoy a laugh as well as our music. The Open Session starts at 9.00pm (and finishes at 10.30) but if you turn up around 8.45 you will almost certainly find some of us in the coffee bar and you can have a chat before the session. For a list of the songs we're currently playing, let me have an email address for you and I'll send you an invite link to our DAMM Open Sessions group site. (Meetup no longer provides a facility to upload this file) Got a song you'd like us to try? Tells us down below. It would help if you can link to youtube so we can listen to the song and provide any other links that may be useful (eg the lyrics or chords or sheet music) Any questions? Again ask them here and Godot or someone else will be along shortly to answer them!
