Friendly, supportive and fun group with a focus on practicing and playing songs together. Meets roughly once a month on a Sunday evening at 6pm in Montclair, VA. Exact location rotates to different houses. Songs played are mostly easy popular music plus whatever participants would like to play. Participants have varying ability ranging from beginner to advanced, to people who have 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.
The group utilizes the "ultimate-guitar.com" site (free) for music and lyrics so that all members can be on the same figurative and literal page. As an alternative to "ultimate-guitar", members can utilize whatever source material they choose and can provide the group with their arrangement prior to the meet-up. Bring a guitar, capo, 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!
In addition to playing new songs, we also revisit previous songs for practice, have solo and improvisation opportunities for all skill levels, and will attempt anything else that sounds good on an acoustic guitar. So, please feel free to make any recommendations and/or suggestion that will make this meet-up more enjoyable and productive for all. Thanks for your interest.
