What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing, are you a singer?

I play acoustic and electric guitar, a little drums, a little bass. Been playing drums on and off for many years but never took lessons or played in a band. Picked up guitar about 4 years ago. Recently started playing a little bass to lay down basslines for recording.

Do you view yourself as a mentor or one who will benefit more from practicing with others?

I believe I will benefit more from practicing with others. l'm a good teacher but I am not advanced enough on guitar to mentor anyone on that.

How can this Meetup group best benefit you personally? What most would you like to see occur at Meetups to ensure this is a great experience?

I would like to learn jam and band etiquette, as well as expand my blues repertoire and gain more experience playing complete songs. I'd also like to learn more about controlling tone and what equipment might be needed in terms of pedals and amps to achieve certain tones.

How long have you been listening to blues music? What Blues songs would you most like to play?

I've been listening to blues rock my whole life, but have listening to much more "straight up blues" since taking up guitar. I would like to learn songs like Smokestack Lightnin', Stateboro Blues, Little Red Rooster, Red House, Hideaway, and many others. right now I've mostly been playing 12 bar stuff not particular to any song.

Do you get along well with others? What will you do to ensure that this is the best Meetup Group?

Yes, I get along well with others. I will try to listen first. I'm new at this and will be looking to follow the lead of more experienced members.

Introduction

Hi, I'm Mike and I've been playing guitar for about 4 years now.
