If you want a specific song, you write the chords on the board so that everybody can follow and then we start playing.If you want to jam around specific chords, you write them on the board and we will follow.If you don't have specific chords or songs to play that's alright, we generally have a few easy songs chords available to play. Do you have recordings I could watch? Sure, go to our FB page for that: https://www.facebook.com/geeksWhoLoveMusic/ • What to bring Most of the time we're a fully electric jam. You can come with your acoustic instrument but if you can wire it to an amp or plug a mic on it you'd have more chance to be heard (and to hear yourself, we can be quite loud!). • Important to know Is it free? We are currently renting a room at Guitar Center. To make it easy for everyone, we do ask for a participation in the room rental (of $6 including the fee added by Meetup) when you RSVP "Yes".

What we're about

How frequently do we meet?

Historically every 1st Tuesday of the month. Sometimes it changes when no room is available or because of public holidays, but it's quite rare.

Are there songs you play frequently?

Yes, here's the list with the corresponding chords: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3eF2iDK-eOqaFU0cExNVkJlYUpnRmRCdHN1ZlZsWjhNOS1B

Is it electronic or acoustic jam?

Most of the time we're fully electric. You can come with your acoustic instrument but if you can wire it to an amp or plug a mic on it you'd have more chance to be heard (and to hear yourself, we can be quite loud!).

Are you available on Facebook?

Yes. Our page is: https://www.facebook.com/geeksWhoLoveMusic/

You will find there some recordings extract that we've done.

Is it free?

We are currently renting a room at Guitar Center, so we split the cost between the participants. The cost is generally around $5 depending on how many people showed up and which room we had.

I'm still looking for a sponsor to help us with the financing of the room rental.

Who can come? I'm not a geek, can I come?

Of course, the goal here is to have fun playing Music! ;-)

I'd like to just watch. Is that alright?

Sure, no problem. We're here for the music, either to play it or listen to it! ;-)
