Acoustic Jam

  • This location is shown only to members

Hi NAG members -

November is always a crazy month at my house.  We have birthdays for 3 kids, our wedding anniversary, and of course Thanksgiving.  So - the soonest I think I can host our next gathering is early December.  Even though that's weeks away, I wanted to go ahead and put something on the calendar, so we can plan and have a date to work with.

On that note - when I was in a similar meet-up in Raleigh, we used to gather every couple of weeks or so at a local coffeehouse.  If anyone has suggestions on a similar space that could work around here, please let me know.  That would definitely make it easier to get together more often.  :)

But in the meantime - let's get together again for our next acoustic jam! 

As usual - please plan on having a couple of songs ready to share with the rest of us if you are able. 

I think the mic and amp worked really well last time, so I'll have it available again  for anyone who would like to use it. 

For those new to the group, we enjoy playing all styles of music. All skill levels, and any acoustic instrument is welcome. Chord sheets are always helpful. You probably should have a capo handy just in case you need it. 

We're also a very laid back, accepting group.  Our main goals are just to have fun playing together, and connecting with other musicians in the area.

Thanks everyone for helping to make this meet-up a success.

Looking forward to getting together again!

Also - Remember - the Naperville Acoustic Guitar Meet-up is now on Facebook!

      Hey Jill. There's just Chuck and you on the waitlist. Both of you should just plan on coming. We'll make room. See you tomorrow!

    Unfortunately, I had something come up for Saturday that I must attend. Just wanted to let you know I will not be there anymore:/ See you all at the next one! And trust me I would much rather be playing guitar on Saturday then going to this event.

    Uploaded "Spanish Romance." The note says, "Its a Beautiful song. If you can get it, you will drive the girls crazy." I've never driven any girl crazy by this, but I am still trying...

    Hey Khris,
    It seems that I've been regulated to the "waiting" list, even though I accepted the invitation as soon as it was posted, but's that's okay. If there isn't enough room, then there isn't enough room, and that's just the way it goes. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and I guess I'll see you all next time.

      Hey Michael - looks like you are off the wait list! See ya Saturday!!

    Curious to get some feedback from other members of the group. Would u be willing to pay a couple bucks or so to have the option of meeting at Tobias Music on months I can't host at my house? Would mean we could get together more often as a group.

    November 4

    • Linda

      I'd be happy to contribute, if I get to attend! Every time I see a new meetup scheduled, it's full right away and I'm asked to sign on to the wait list...

      1 · November 23

    • Khris K

      I think I sent an email out to everyone - but we do have a meet-up planned in January at Tobias Music. Details to come soon. But, it should be great! They have plenty of space!

    anybody got an inexpensive electric guitar they want to sell?

    November 21

    • John H.

      I have a few electric guitars I'd sell. How cheap is cheap to you? These would mostly go around $250.

    Uploaded "Let It Be" and "Mary Did You Know" to prep for the upcoming session. Hope folks find them fun!

    Khris,
    I’ve been having a discussion with Paul Tobias from Tobias Music in Downers Grove (http://tobiasmusic.com/) about the possibility of getting access to their event room (seating for 70) for NAG jams in the future.
    If we can get the room for $50 - $75 do you think we could get enough people to attend and split the cost? Once a month on a Saturday afternoon might be arranged, but I told Paul the schedule would depend on both NAG members and whatever Tobias might already have booked.
    Since they seem more than willing to accommodate us, the jams might be scheduled on a flexible basis as long as NAG can give Tobias enough advanced notice.
    Let me know if you think this is worth pursuing. I think a place that size that doesn’t impose a member’s hospitality (yours, LOL) and availability would be worth the few dollars each attendee would need to contribute.
    Let me know …
    Later,
    Jeff

      Jeff..,.i think that's a great idea. Thank you for looking into it. I would still plan on having the jam at my place every other month or so. But this would definitely give us more options. Thanks again for checking it out!

    • Jill

      Great idea. I think we all can chip in

      not Oct. 31, Mitch. That's when my friend, Karen, posted this and I copied and pasted too much. LOL

      November 4

  • Bob S.

    Sure, it would be OK with me Khris!

  • phil m

    hi khris - why not rotate at members homes to take load off of you - just a thought

    October 31

    • Khris K

      Hey Phil. That's definitely a great option. It's just tough to find someone with enough space for our large group.
